Why Does My Dog Smile?

Why Do Dogs Smile?

The submissive grin is a tactic dogs use to shut off aggression from another individual, either human or canine. This behavior is commonly seen in greeting situations where the dog is actively soliciting attention in a nonthreatening manner. Often the submissive grin invites interaction from others, and it’s likely that your dog has continued “smiling” at you and your family because it’s gotten her a lot of attention in the past.

This is Ally, a 2 year old Lab/Collie mix who is available at www.outpaws.org- she has one of the best smiles we've seen!

Testimonial

  • "Great experience. For me, the most important thing was low stress. I had a new, large dog that needed to be neutered. I was able to make the appointment online, receive confirmation and drop him off at the appointed time without any delay. The procedure went well and I was able to pick him up when I got off work. Again, stress free and quick."
