Dogs Communicate with Humans

Updated: Apr 2, 2021

OH, Those Puppy Dog Eyes!

We know that in the thirty thousand years of living with humans, dogs have learned to

communicate with us to get what they want. They constantly study and watch us,

learning how to get us to do their bidding, such as feed and pet them, or take them for a

walk. They can even ask us for help with their irresistible puppy dog eyes. Australian

Labradoodles are known to be excellent communicators. When your doodle is trying to

get the ball from under the couch, he will probably ask for your help. He may look up at you, even whine or cock his head,eyes pleading! Perfectly understood, and who can resist?

Do Dogs Smile?

No other mammal has learned to depend on their human companions like our dogs

have. Canine behaviorists believe that dogs have perhaps even learned to smile by observing their human friends smile. When your Labradoodle does a trick or when you greet her, you will probably smile or even do a dance of joy. Our dogs learn to copy this, with their own smile and whole body wiggle of happiness. Mimicking these body languages, means he just might get a pet or a treat.

So, yes, though dogs’ brains are not as complicated as our human ones, they do

express emotions and effective communication with a smile, adoring eyes, or even a

little tail wagging jig.

For those interested in scientific study on dogs and smiling check out this study.

What makes your WALA Labradoodle smile,

beg with those adoring eyes, and do the happy dog wiggle?

Enjoy these photos from some of our breeders of their labradoodles' unique smiles.
