Although most dogs spend their lives as happy and content animals, they can get angry. So when you see a dog with its ears back, baring its teeth, and snarling, you better watch out. This is not a time to approach the dog because it is ready to fight and protect its territory or its “pack.”
If you come across a dog acting this way, just back away and take another direction. If your dog is baring teeth, pulling ears back, and snarling, it is trying to threaten the person or animal on the receiving end of the gesture.
Even if your dog is angry or frightened of something else, be careful if you intervene. Sudden movements can scare the dog and make it accidentally bite you.
If your pooch makes the next sound, it’s time to get down to business.
