I have always wondered what my dog wants to say, but trying to figure it out sometimes feels like attempting to read hieroglyphics. Today’s infographic helps to decipher what my best friend is trying to tell me. Sorry about the mixed signals before my boy. When all else fails I go with treats.

I will say that learning, and now being able to recognize these certain behavioral communication signs has certainly increased the bond that we have.
