Dog Body Language Guide: What Is Your Dog Trying To Tell You?

Dogs can’t talk, but they have an effective way of communicating with their body language, showing signals to indicate their feelings. As we learn to recognize how dogs communicate, we can better understand what our furry friend is telling us. You don’t have to be Cesar Millan to know when a pup is happy, hurt, or angry. Dog facial expressions and dog tail and ear languages are ways to find out what your dog might be thinking.

Best Escape-Proof Dog Harnesses (For Houdini Hounds)

Did your dog escape the collar for the third time today? Perhaps they found a way to wiggle themselves out of their harness while you weren’t looking? Either way, having to chase your dog down the street because they saw a squirrel is never fun. So we set out to find the best escape-proof dog harnesses comparing quality, escape-proof features, and user reviews. There can be multiple motives for why your dog may continuously escape their harness. It’s often due to poor fit and quality—some dogs don’t like the feeling of restraint. When shopping for a dog harness, you must look for one with secure clips, strong material, padding, handles, and reflective strips for visibility should they escape.

Poodle Mixes: 52 Different Types Of Doodle Hybrids

Poodles are one of the most popular breeds in the world, coming in as the seventh most popular dog in the United States.

Doctor Stanley Coren explains in his 1994 book The Intelligence of Dogs that Poodles are around second place in intelligence in the canine world, only next to the Border Collie. Combine their striking good looks with their intelligence (not to mention their unexpected athleticism) and you’ve got a winning combination.
