If We Could Talk to the Animals

Do you think you can communicate with your dogs and cats well? We watch them everyday and pick up on their habits, seeing how their tails wag or ears fold, we can sense what they are feeling. There was a recent study in dog tail wags and they noticed tails wag more to the right when the dog feels positive about the person or situation. Ears are also a great indicator of their current state of being, with pricked up or forward ears showing interest and drawn back to show fear. Of course, these are pets who are very close to you and you can see the subtle changes in their demeanor to understand their emotional state. I definitely know when my little guys are hungry and want to be fed - they talk up a storm.
