Despite significant advances in our knowledge of dog behavior and communication, myths, mis-interpretations and mis-information still abound about what dogs are communicating.  As humans, we can’t help but look at the behavior of dogs and other animals through the lens of our own communication systems, but that’s exactly what leads to mis-interpretations!

In this interview, Certified Animal Behaviorists, Dr. Suzanne Hetts, and Dr. Dan Estep, Ph.D. tell us how the science of animal behavior answers the questions:


– Does a wagging tail mean a friendly dog?

– What does it mean when your dog yawns? Are they indicators of “stress” or something else?

– Are licking and leaning on you “dominance behaviors”? And, should you stop your dog from doing them?

– When your dog rolls over on his back, is he inviting a belly rub?

– If your dog urinates on your possessions, is he mad at you?

– Do dogs express guilt?
