14 Different Ways Your Dog Can Talk to You

From the famous “puppy dog eyes” to the zoomies that leave us in awe (and sometimes in fear for our furniture), dogs are always expressing themselves.

When you see your pup’s ears pinned back against their head, it’s usually a sign that they’re feeling scared, anxious, or submissive.

Tail Wagging We all know that a wagging tail means a happy dog, right? Well, it’s not quite that simple!

The speed and direction of your pup’s tail wag can actually give you a lot of insight into their emotional state.

Whining or Whimpering Does your dog ever let out a pitiful whine or whimper that just tugs at your heartstrings? This is their way of saying, “Hey, I need something from you!”

It could be a sign that they’re hungry, thirsty, or need to go outside for a potty break.
