As humans, it's easy for us to communicate when we're feeling stress. We simply need to open our mouths and speak. Unfortunately, as much as we wish they could speak, dogs aren't awarded that same convenience. We must use their behavior as a stress compass.
Each dog is different, but there are specific behaviors that tell us when our dogs aren't doing so well.
Dogs count on us for food, shelter, water, and other necessities. We must also remember that they depend on us to notice signs of any complications as well.
Dogs communicate through their behavior so if we don't notice or act upon any strange occurrences, then it's the equivalent to us not listening when another human speak.
Luckily, we know our dogs best so we're the most qualified ones to determine whether a behavior is normal or indicative of something more serious.
