The Language of Pooch.

Today, Phoenix met Indi again. Phoenix is under socialised with other dogs and hasn’t learnt canine body language/etiquette yet. She has the rather unfortunate habit of staring dogs directly in the eye, which is a bit of a no-no. So, spending six hours with Indi was useful because she was taught a few things about hanging out with her compadres.

Some canine dos and don’ts. (OK, mainly don’ts)

DON’T climb on top of a larger, slightly grumpy dog who happens to be lying down at the time.

DON’T bite the tail of a larger, slightly grumpy dog who happens to be lying down at the time.

DON’T stare at a larger, slightly grumpy dog who happens to be lying down at the time, she will just ignore you, or get up and walk away, then ignore you leaving you slightly bewildered.

DO take notice when another dog growls at you, it probably means trouble.
