The 10 Most Unanswered Questions about Resources
Here are some important things that your puppy does which can tell you what it is trying to communicate.
Why No One Talks About Animals Anymore
One of the most common is the barking of your puppy. Of course, it is a puppy, so barking is usual. However, you cannot just ignore that because it is expected. Barking is the first action of a puppy to try to talk to you. One common reason for barking is that your puppy is trying to get your attention so LISTEN to it! Hunger is also a reason for barking so it can have some food from you. It can also be because it is bored so it wants you to play with it. To rule out the hunger for a reason, you may remember if you have already given the puppy food to eat. Barking at other persons may be because it recognizes that person as a foe.
Your pup’s head moves away from your hands when you pet his head. This means that your puppy feels that you are dominating him. Instead of petting his head, touch the side of his face so that it will feel your affection.
Nipping is another common action. This is a normal behavior of your puppy and it does not mean aggression. During the growth of a puppy’s teeth, it is hurting and that is why it nips. But, take note that this should not be tolerated and that you should discipline it.
Being protective of its possessions is also a behavior of a puppy. When your puppy guards its toys or other possessions, it is trying to tell you that it is protecting and fighting for what he owns.
