3. The head tilt

You most probably have been noticed that when you talked to your dogs and they tilt their head to the side. Isn’t it cute? The question is why they do so? Scientists don’t really know about it why they really do so? However, they do have some interesting and plausible hypothesis.

A dog may do so just to get a better view of your facial expression or they want to hear you more clearly. These can be two scenarios according to some scientists.

4. Flehmen response

Have you ever look a funny look on your cat’s face? That’s called flehmen. Open mouth with drawn back lips, your cat may be looked disgusted. Don’t be furious. In this case, cats try to smell.

5. Yawning

While yawning, a person seems bored or really tired. In dogs, yawning is a different thing. If your dog is yawning, it means a dog is in pacifying behavior. He is showing peace and friendship to you. It is a sign that it will not harm you so there is no need for terrifying.
