Very informative. I currently understand most of these signals in my puppy, but will be aware of the others as my puppy continues to get older and becomes more socialized and placed in many other different situations.

This was extremely informative. I love the idea of going to the dog park alone first to see how the other dogs interact. I am going to do this. I have been afraid to take my little Maltese. Thanks!!
