Dog Behaviour. Why does my dog ‘fake’ yawn?

Why do dogs ‘fake’ yawn?
The fake yawn is one way the dogs body relieves stress.
He or she may have ‘had enough’ or getting frustrated in a situation.
They may be highly aroused in anticipation of an event such as, ‘I’m waiting, waiting, for that food bowl to be put down….come on!”
It pays to look at the overall situation to gain clearer insight as to the route cause of the ‘fake’ yawn but worth then addressing if this is a stressful situation/event requiring resolution, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant & Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
