What is Your Dog Trying to Tell You?

This quiz is about understanding behaviours of dogs by their owners. How a good dog owner are you? Test yourself!

  1. 1 What is your dog saying?

    You see your dog doing something he should not have done and yelled at him. From the moment you yelled at him, your dog did not make eye contact with you, pulled his lips inward, tilted his ears backward, and never looked at the direction in which you were. What is you dog trying to tell you?
    1. I am still your sweet and submissive dog
    2. I am very angry with you
    3. I feel guilty
    4. I am afraid of you
    5. I am a stubborn dog

    You are the BOSS man

    Your dog tells you that he accepts your leadership. Don't punish your dog for this behaviour. He says you "You are my big boss man."
  2. 2 And what is this strange dog trying to express?

    You met a dog you've never seen before and the dog snarls at you. He raised his hair on his back up (hackles), his tail down and straight and his ears tilted backwards. What is the dog trying to tell you?
    1. I am afraid of everything now and I may bite you.
    2. I am your boss boy! And of course I will bite you.
    3. I am afraid and I will run away ASAP.
    4. I am a nervous dog.
    5. I want to eat something, empty your pockets friend.

    If you corner me, I will bite you baby!

    The profile expressed in question is the classic profile of a not dominant frightened biter. They do not have the confidence like dominant dogs and the most dangerous dogs they are. If they can go away, they will but if they feel cornered, they will attack ferociously. Give these dogs a way to run away and do not force you on them.
  3. 3 Your male dog suddenly starts to chatter his teeth. What is your dog trying to tell you?

    1. I want some interest, man.
    2. I am hungry, hooman.
    3. I think you should brush my teeth, boss.
    4. I smell a hot female around me, I want her.
    5. I am bored, boyyy.

    She must be mine!

    A part of courtship ritual, when a male dog meets a female dog, he nibbles the hair of her ears. And chattering his teeth may express that he smells a hot female around him.
