    For Humans, communication with each other comes easy and dogs have their own way of communicating and listening to each other too. For us to understand what they are saying we need to decipher their mostly non-verbal cues and body language. Just like us dogs feel emotions and they convey this through body language. To get an understanding of what they are saying we need to look at the dog as a whole. For example, a dog with a wagging tail does not necessarily mean they are happy.

    I wish more people realised that. The number of times my dog has challengingly eyed up a young upstart male lab with his tail held high and the lab's owner assumes he's friendly because he's wagging it...

    Then there's the propeller wag, where he's seem a human who he really likes (or who always gives him treats, which comes to pretty much the same thing).

    Similarly barking is not always aggressive, Murphy is nervous and George just wants attention.
