with animals ...its like taking your dog to a local park.... upon approaching another dog its the non verbal communications and cues they pick up on......as a previous poster wrote.....how aggressive the other dog is...by size/breed...by actions...eye contact tails.... if male or female ...etc.

there are some unwritten rules in the animal kingdom..... ever watch how one pride of lions get along with other lions????? not very well...


I well domesticated behaved dog.....will pick up on tone of voice more than the word if they don't understand it....also if they think you might be a threat to its masters
- the dog will watch your cues... too....

Dogs primarily communicate with body language that they learn from the mother and siblings.

No. Wife and I was at the zoo a while back. The monkeys were chatting up a storm. I asked her what they were talking about and she said she had no clue.

Non-verbal communication tends to mean more to many animals than vocalizing. Much of it is learned behavior but not all of it. If a species is wide ranging variation is bound to creep in. If there's too much of a difference those animals won't successfully breed and produce young to carry on that trait, so there's a limit to effective language. Its a totally different thing that a dog understands what a human has taught it in one language but not another. That isn't dog communication, its something it has learned from the other beings it happens to live with.

Vocalizations mean more to birds than many species, but not all of them. Birds that tend to occupy heavily forested habitats announce territory, give alarms, and announce breeding condition vocally more than birds that occupy open habitats for obvious reasons. Sound carries when the singer isn't visible. There are dialects in many widespread bird species. Song sparrows are a good example. There are dozens if not more dialects spread across the continental US alone. Dialects can be visual as well as verbal too. Think about the widespread panther chameleons of Madagascar...their color variation is huge as is their ability to shift their color when displaying. They may all posture much the same to intimidate, but the color shift could be misunderstood between remoter locales.

Also i assume animals of different species can't speak to one another by language? Example a dog and a cat or a dog and a fox?

LOL, well, THAT'S an original question. I don't think that a Chinese dog is going to sniff butt differently than an American one and I'm pretty sure different vocalizations like growling with dogs, hissing with cats etc don't know any international language barriers.

i used to think this until my cat learned to say "out". she doesn't say it much recently but for a while after my brother taught her, she would come in the kitchen and says "aaaaaawwwwt" if she wanted us to open the door. i think maybe we didn't reinforce it enough because now she says that along with other sounds. she's unusually intelligent for a cat. she uses mirrors to fix herself.

I can tell when I go to the East side of town because all the dogs are barking in Spanish!








My teachers used to say there are no dumb questions...CD has me seriously doubting that though!

I can’t tell if our cat does or not, or if cats I’ve seen in other countries do or not. But, cats
around the world seem to have the same “cat-titude” if you know what I mean!
