pet owners have developed their own way of communicating with their
pets. Your furry friend can often tell by the tone of your voice when
you’re praising or reprimanding them, and you know by those big puppy
dog eyes that they want a piece of the food you’re eating.
communicating goes for body language as well. You can tell by a wagging
tail or raised hackles that your pet is excited or unhappy. Likewise,
they can often tell when you’re angry or upset based on how you move.
Take some time to notice how often you’re reading your four-legged
friend’s body language, and you may be surprised how clearly their
personality comes through. So even if your pet can’t talk to you,
there’s an unspoken bond that doesn’t need words.
But did you know that just like their waking body language, there are insights to be gained from how your pets sleep? There are many subtle cues to pay attention for that could reveal whether your furry friend is happy, cold, anxious, or comfortable. If you’re not checking out the signals they’re sending while asleep, you’re missing out on valuable insights into your pet’s state of mind.
