September 25, 2018: New Study on Canine Communication Says More Investigation Still Needed

Sep 25, 2018

New study aims to “provide an overview of the recent literature about dog communication, describing the different nature of the signals used in conspecific and heterospecific interactions and their communicative meaning” and concludes that: “Dogs have a vast repertoire of visual, tactile, acoustic, and olfactory signals that they use for an expressive and fine-tuned communication with both conspecifics and humans. Nevertheless, the communicative importance of the different body parts in social interactions still remains poorly investigated.” Read study.
