This is Lakomi (again). She is an upper mid content wolfdog. A lot of the animals will vocalize, but Lakomo goes above and beyond, creating her own little language. You can often hear her talking in other videos; if I'm within earshot of her she'll talk to me until I come visit. She most frequently will start talking when she wants attention or is very excited. Partway through we get a brief cameo from her pack mate, Masaw, before she boxes him out. He's an absolute sweetheart and the only animal Lakomi has ever bonded with. They make an odd couple; Lakomi is uber hyperactive while Masaw is entirely content sleeping in the shade all day. But it works :) In the wild, wolves most frequently howl, but they will also bark (albeit rarely), whimper, growl, and whine. Learning to interpret the nuances in vocal cues helps us to better understand the animals, and using that knowledge together with knowledge of physical cues is how we keep ourselves as safe as possible while working with these amazing animals.
I read in the description about reading their body language. They can be very subtle in their cues. A lot of people don't even know how to read a dogs cues.
Do you find that they shed more than dogs?
Thank you for sharing your videos. 🌹
