Doggone Safe is pleased to announce the winners of our Many Moods of Dog photo contest. One of our key educational goals is to teach kids, parents and dog owners about dog body language and get people thinking about what dogs might be feeling. Dogs have feelings and they show their emotions through their body language. Dogs will be happier and people safer if everyone learns to read dog body language and interacts with dogs in ways that make them happy and content and not in ways that make them fearful, anxious or angry. This contest was intended to generate photos showing the various moods of dogs. The judging was based on photographic merit.
We are grateful to our wonderful judges Tula Asselanis and Judy Johns who had a difficult job in choosing from among all the wonderful entries.
