That’s scary! Recognize and understand avoidance behavior in dogs
Dogs are among the most popular pets in the world. Despite their positive qualities, they can also be dangerous, especially if their avoidance behavior is misinterpreted or not recognized in the first place.
The avoidance behavior manifests itself in various forms, such as e.g. by backing away, fleeing, yawning or licking the muzzle. It can be a sign of fear, insecurity or discomfort and is usually an indication that the dog is aware of something disturbing.
