Calming signals is a term coined by Norwegian dog trainer Turid Rugaas to describe the signals used by dogs to communicate with each other. The type of signals a dog uses depends on the dog. The signals, however, are universal and all dogs understand them even if they do not use them. Dogs are known to use these signals with humans, too. The term has been used by other canine behaviour experts to explain dog behaviour.
