How do wild dogs communicate with each other?

    Similarly to humans, African wild dogs communicate with each other in a number of ways.  A combination of physical signals, scenting, and vocal communication creates a sophisticated system for delivering messages to other members of the pack.  As a result, or maybe as a result of, wild dogs have a very strong social structure.

    Wild dogs scent their territory (not unlike domestic dogs) and use various physical actions such as tail-wagging, rolling, and licking the corners of other dogs’ mouths to show submission and allegiance.  Wild dogs also use a complicated system of barks, squeals, and ear movements to convey directions during hunts and in social activities.
