owner is involved
And let’s start with the most recognizable sign! It is generally accepted that if a dog wags its tail, it means that it has a great mood. But in practice there are nuances. Now, if along with the tail the whole body wags from the shoulder blades to the toes, then the dog is really happy! But if the tail is raised, strained and only its tip wags, and the dog’s body is frozen and the mouth is tightly closed – beware! This means that the dog is very tense, she does not like something, and throwing her arms around her is a bad decision. Here you can draw an analogy with cats. Remember, they wag their tail in displeasure? Contrary to stereotypes, so do dogs.
Slightly parted mouth, relaxed muzzle.
Smile! Yes, try a smile and pay attention to the position of your lower jaw. During a smile, she drops slightly, and the upper and lower teeth no longer touch each other.

No matter how good and balanced your dog’s main ration is, you will still want to diversify it and delight your pet with something special. And here special delicacies come to the rescue, which, by the way, are also indispensable in the process of education and training. But how to understand a wide range and what kind of goodies for dogs to choose? Or is it better to cook them yourself? Let’s talk about this in our article.
Many dog owners who prefer a natural type of feeding prepare their own treats for their pets. However, such goodies spoil quite quickly, they are inconvenient to take with you for a walk, because they get their hands dirty, and it takes them a while to cook. Therefore, ready-made treats for dogs are much more popular. In any pet store you will find a huge assortment of such goodies, but be careful: not all of them will be equally useful for your pet.
First of all, do not buy economy-class delicacies, as they are made from low-grade, low-quality raw materials and often lead to serious digestive upsets or allergic reactions. The best choice is balanced natural goodies, non-GMO, with a high content of selected meat (up to 93%). Continue reading
