bianca I haven't noticed anything like that with my boy but then reading Freesteps reply, he does poke his tounge out a lot more than my girl!

Freestep I once read a study that found black dogs do more lip-licking than dogs of other colors. Lip-licking is a submissive or calming signal, and is a form of body language easy for other dogs to read.

I notice that my black cats do it, too.

Dog - dog communication in Black GSDs

This is a question for the owners of black GSDs. Do you find that it is harder for other (strange) dogs to read the facial expressions of the solid black GSDs? In particular since they don't have eyebrows or lighter lines in their faces that can express intentions/emotions.
Of course I realize that there is more than just the facial expressions like posture, hackles. ears eyes etc.
When WD is old enough (at least three years) I would love the idea of adding a black female pup.
