Graphic of dog aggression signs

I thought this was interesting to look at rather then read the signs of aggression in a list. I think a lot of people are unaware of the signs at the bottom and unfortunately try to reprimand the signs in the middle and we all know what happens when things hit the red zones! I bet most people who experience dog bites say "I didn't even see it coming." Timmy is very expressive when he's stressed, panting, licking and yawning, when that happens he's removed from the situation. I feel so bad for dogs that I see in the same situation with owners who do nothing.

I got a dog bite when i was four when our friends neighbor opened front door of their house and the big black lab raced out of the door and attacked me. I tried to run as fast as i can and i saw the whole thing from when the dog came out of the house. interesting article.

good stuff Jen, thanks for that , AVSAB just updated their site which is about time. Yep most people miss the subtle less obvious sign. The idea is to catch the head turn , the lip lick because sometimes it doesn't get to the growl. Thanks .
