Is your dog as happy as you?

Updated: Dec 17, 2018

In general, a happy dog will have relaxed body language.

These are some of the physical signs of a happy dog:

· A tail wag that involves whole-body wiggles, or at least a relaxed body.

· A soft, partially open mouth

· Making a “play bow,” with their rear in the air and chest lowered to the ground

· Ears that are relaxed

· Overall relaxed posture, with a raised head, relaxed tail

· Rolling over to show their belly

· Happy dogs are generally not destructive. Destructive behaviour can be a sign of stress.

· They’re excited to see you when you walk in the door.

· They have a healthy appetite, which indicates feeling physically well and emotionally content. (Changes in appetite are one of the first signs of potential illness or unhappiness.)

The best way to keep a dog happy is to simply provide for their physical, intellectual, and emotional needs.
