Among humans, with a simple look, a glimpse of rage or moment of confusion can be transmitted.
But we humans are not the only creatures that use their gaze to send covert messages – wolves and dogs can also communicate with their eyes alone as we
A recent study has reinforced the influence of a single look, with nearly two-thirds of dog owners claiming their dogs are using an expression as the primary means of communicating their needs.
Nine out of ten owners said that their pets are very good at communicating what they want through looks and body language.
The research was conducted by the dog food company Pet Munchies in collaboration with K9 Magazine, which questioned 1,100 dog owners across the UK about how they dealt with their pooches.
According to studies by Pet Munchies and K9 Magazine, dogs tend to use their eyes to “wave” to their owners above and beyond strategies such as barking, crying or running in circles.
Furthermore, 58 percent of animals that stand and stare will resort to nudging their owner’s leg with their nose if their message does not pass.
Approximately 57 percent of owners said barking or moaning was a way to get attention-marginally less common than giving a look to their owner-and 39 percent said their pets were standing at the door suggesting they wanted to go out.
Just under a fifth, 22 percent, said their dog was running in circles or back and forth to show they wanted something, and 7.5 percent said their pets were resorting to stealing something to be careful.
But the need to talk works both ways with owners saying that they want their animals to understand them, also found by researchers. Nearly half of the dog owners, 40%, said they’d like to ask their pet what they can do to make them happy.
Another 19% said they wanted to be able to ask their pet if they were sick and 18% said they wanted to ask about the history of their dog and what happened to them before they met.
K9 Magazine editor Ryan O’Meara, 42, and three dog owners said:’ Knowing how to speak to a dog is extremely important.
As they interact with us, it’s crucial to understand what our dogs are trying to tell us.
Dogs have learned to judge our mood and character throughout the decades, for example, by looking at us. This is the way a dog tries to talk to us.
Research reveals, most dogs are using the power of the gaze as more of a stare to get us to understand what they want from us and owners understand what their dogs are telling them.
According to owners, having a treat, or encouraging us to turn our focus on them and give them some fuss, we understand clearly what our dogs want.
Communication is either staring or barking for dogs or whining. Where it fails to look, the barking will always work-although it is a little less subtle.
