  8. Great video, really nice explanation of the signs. I work in dog hotel and so many owners doesnt have a clue that things like this even exist, they either dont see or dont want to see that they have to communicate with dog on dog level not on human level. Plus dogs needs some kind of job/exercise to do and discipline, cuddling and stroking is great for both, human and dogs but it will never fully satisfy them. Keep educating people 🙂

    I learn new things everyday 😀

  10. My dog's eye contact is different. Based on his actions while looking my strait in the eyes, he wants love and attention or is expecting me to do something or waiting on an order. He is a large black lab mutt with a large curly tail like a husky. His tail is high and slowly wagging if relaxed. Also, when he pants, it is never a bad thing, it simply means he is tired and needs a drink or is panting AND lip licking when extremely exited.He shows listening,calmness and understanding through his ears. if his ears are high and his head is tilted, he is confused. If his ears are low and unraised, he is tired or calm. Not the best video for my doggo (but he's mostly happy so) but still very helpful

    "My cute and adorable poodle was a terrible case, biting people and other dogs unprovoked, growling and barking at people in public, and was stubborn[Go Here== https://plus.google.com/u/0/115557579011061481628/posts/9oegaoEuLkQ ]. But with Doggy Dan's online dog training program, the whole situation changed. There was a tremendous transformation, the dog became calm, submissive, and well behaved. Doggy Dan's training works like a miracle on dogs. Thanks Dan!"

  16. it's amazing to me how many dog owners have no real knowledge of canine behavior. Dogs deserve better.

  21. I don't know about the lip licking.. When you pet them they do it to and you can tell they like it cause they will touch your hand as if saying don't stop.

  22. Hi there! I have a question regarding my 3 months old rottie mix. We are having a problem with her puppy biting… it only happens maybe 20% of the day where she would go in a biting mood. She would bite my pants and long sleeves. Ouch doesnt work and its sometimes hard to snap her out of it. I make sure I exercise her both physically and mentally everyday. Yesterday, we went to a park where she started nipping her leash and my legs. I am not sure as to what triggers it. It happened again today when we went to the same park. It happens towards the end of our walk. Is it possible that she goes into that biting state because she was overtired or overstimulated? Any tips would help~

  23. "Fearfull agression" my puppy used to growl and do some low & high barks, run around and jump around my bed when just playing. He would like bite my hand but not in a painful way. He was few months old and it was clear to see he wasn't in fear/angry or stressed at all. We are a responsible family and I can assure you that not everything mention in this video is true.

  24. very informative. thank you
