    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Dogs actually have a very complex and diverse body language to communicate with both other dogs and people. They use a combination of facial expressions, tail wagging, ear positioning, body posture, and vocalizations to convey their emotions and intentions. This rich body language allows dogs to express their needs, desires, and feelings, as well as to understand and interpret the body language of others. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A scared dog being confined can trigger its natural instinct to find a way out and alert others by barking. Dogs often feel trapped and threatened in confined spaces, leading to anxiety and fear. In such situations, they may exhibit behaviors like pacing, scratching, and barking as a means of expressing distress and seeking help. Therefore, it is likely that a scared dog will rapidly search for an escape route and bark in alarm when confined, making the statement true.

This act specifically addresses the issue of dogs being loose in areas where sheep are present, as it aims to protect the welfare of the sheep and prevent any harm or disturbance caused by dogs.

    Explanation
    Aggressive dogs may exhibit several behaviors, including freezing, barking, head butting, snarling, and wagging their tail. Freezing is a common response in aggressive dogs, as they may momentarily stop moving or become still before attacking. Barking is another way aggressive dogs communicate their aggression and intimidate others. Head butting is a physical behavior where the dog forcefully bumps its head into something or someone, often as a display of dominance or aggression. Snarling is a vocalization that aggressive dogs make to warn others and show their aggression. Surprisingly, aggressive dogs may also wag their tail, but this wagging is usually stiff and accompanied by other aggressive behaviors, indicating a potential threat.

    E. Do not allow tug-of-war games
    G. If the dog is likely to fight over a toy, do not use toys unless they are on their own
    H. Avoid conflicts by staying alert and keeping the dog under control
    Explanation
    To prevent dog fights, a dog walker should praise good behavior and ignore bad behavior. This helps reinforce positive behavior and discourage negative behavior. It is also important to feed dogs in separate areas to avoid competition and potential fights over food. Some dog walkers may choose to carry a water pistol as a form of protection, which can be used to distract or deter dogs from fighting. Tug-of-war games should be avoided as they can escalate into fights. If a dog is likely to fight over a toy, it is best not to use toys unless the dog is alone. Lastly, staying alert and keeping the dog under control can help avoid conflicts and potential fights.
