Dog Tongue Flicking

July 30, 2012

Have you ever noticed your dog flick his tongue? I often see this behavior in the studio. Dog tongue flicking is an involuntary response. Conveyed directly through his brain's limbic section, it is an honest and direct response to "I'm a little unsure about this." Dogs often follow a tongue flick with a good yawn. In this context, the yawn signifies feelings of uncertainty and anticipation. The next time you interview a dog for a job, be aware of the signals he is telegraphing with his tongue.
