Your animals are likely having whole conversations without uttering a sound or even using telepathy. Have you noticed? International dog trainer, Turid Rugaas, says that canines use about 30 different signals like yawning, licking their lips, and head turns, to tell each other important things that keep them safe, avoid conflicts, and send warnings. Cats have their own body language, as do other species. Since reading Turid's article on calming dog signals, I've greatly expanded my ability to "read" situations when out and about, either on my own or with my dog. But it goes beyond just reading the signs. When you actually use these signals with animals, it can "crack their code" and let them know you respect their protocol, understand them, and are listening. So instead of that cold shoulder from your feline friend, you might actually be able to finagle a warm reception!
