The key to their healthy life. A dog is one such being whose core of happiness lies only in the amount of love and care bestowed upon. The common signs of a dog being in a happy state is the wagging of their tails, with which the whole body might sway along. That deep look into their eyes imparting gentleness. Their actions are more soft and tangle-free with relaxed ears and a well-puffed body. A happy dog is much more playful and would like you to dedicate your time into playing around with them. They also like to roll on their backs and welcome hugs and strokes from you to entertain them well. If your dog simple lays beside you for a while with his/her head on your lap; it is a true sign that your’s is a truly cherished company for him/her.

Fear in dogs mostly comes in a package of guilt or shame. Dogs are playful,notorious characters and sometimes in the heat of their excitement they might damage certain commodities of the household to which we might react negatively to the poor creature. The reaction of fear observed in a dog is that they would simply hold down close to the ground with pinned ears and tail tucked in between their legs. But indeed dogs have also been observed to behave differently when strangers are concerned; they might not express the fear they have and might outcast them being ready to face the fight.

 

Pain
