Revealing Dog’s bared teeth is not smiling
Children particularly tend to mistake a dog’s bared teeth for a “smile”. Ith is often the reason kids end up getting bitten by dogs when they try to zoom in for a hug. (Your periodic reminder: Dogs hate hugs.) For example, to a kid, it could kind of look like the dog below is smiling. To the researchers who study DogFACS, this expression is the painstakingly unemotional combination of AU110 (upper-lip raised), AU109 (nose wrinkled), and AU116 (lower-lip depressed), as Catia Caeiro of the University of Lincoln explained in an email to Science of Us.
Sad Looking Dog
The inner raised eyebrow just makes dogs look so sad. As if they are desperate for human companionship and care; it also makes their eyes look larger, and therefore more infant-like. “It’s a ‘You look like an infant baby, here, I’ll protect you,’ kind of thing”. It’s an assessment based on human interpretation but not really that of the dog’s emotions.
No Guilty Look
Remember the “guilty look,” or the face your dog makes when you get home and find your favorite shoes have been used as chew toys? Is it truly a look of guilt — as in, the dog knows he’s done something wrong? Or is it a reaction to their human companion’s angry face?
The Bond Matters
“It’s completely fine to follow your intuition” when interpreting your dog’s emotions. If the bond is there, that’s based on this special relationship and this special history we have with dogs.” People who love their dogs likely already get the gist.
The dogs might not be smiling at all in some of the images – but they are still a stress-relief. So, happy viewing for good health.
