“Many people hear a dog bark and panic. They miss the high-pitched note as a friendly excited greeting. The wagging tail, the tongue hanging out, the soft body as signs the dog is friendly. It’s deep bark with the growling notes, the rolled lips, tense, quivering body and pulled back ears you need to watch for. Learn to speak dog, it could save your life.”
Dog to English
Absolutely nothing is as scary
As hearing a big dog bark
Whether it be toothy or hairy
Or slinking about after dark
Science says dogs make ten sounds
Howling and barking, snarling and growling
A dog’s communication knows no bounds
Listen to him; save a lot of scowling
What did your dog just say?
‘I’m hungry’, ‘I want walkies’, ‘warning!’
Each vocalisation has meaning, okay.
Learn them, this very morning
Gird yourself and take the lead
It’s walkies time, you’ve been bestowed
This dogs’ strong and now he’s pee’d
He’ll drag you down the road!
Thanks for reading my friends.
Have a great day!
