How to understand the language of dogs

Do all dogs know the language and signs of appeasement?

From birth the dog starts learning to communicate, this training lasts approximately until it is three months old. At that time the dog learns a language that will accompany him throughout his life. It is initiated through contact with its mother and its brothers and sisters who will serve as teachers for our newborn dog.

The most important period for language recognition is the puppy’s socialization time, which lasts from three weeks to three months. Premature separation from his family cocoon can have terrible consequences caused by the lack of a social behavioural model. However, there can be even more serious consequences such as lack of inhibition when he bites, fear, stress and many others.

But not all dogs are able to interpret and recognize the signals we are going to show you. Although these are only specific cases during which we observe premature weaning or isolation of the puppy (a common occurrence among dogs in shelters).
