Fellow Creatures: Is My Dog Happy?

The number 1 question dog owners want to ask.

By Zazie Todd, PhD

I have a new post at my Psychology Today blog Fellow Creatures, Is my dog happy? How dogs' body language is a guide. According to Dogs Trust, this is the top question people would like to ask their dog if the dog could talk.

The post looks at how scientists have developed ways to study dogs' body language, and what they have found when looking at dogs in two different contexts - at the dog park and at the veterinarian. This includes some of the subtle signs of stress that dog owners may miss.
