I have a question on wolf pups and its been bugging me so I decided to ask here. When and how do wolf pups learn how to swim? Now my other question is on communication. I would love it if you could give me a long list or links to how wolves communicate. That is all I have.

Wolves will probably Teach their pups these things.
As, the Parents teach them almost Everything, I think this Would be one thing.

Wolves communicate by Vocal sounds and Body Language,
Whining and Growling would probably be Most used, but I'm not sure on this.


I can't Give any links as, I cannot go to many other websites.

The wolf is very comfortable in the water, and does not hesitate to wade through icy streams or swim across short stretches of lake. In summer, wolves often bathe in streams to keep cool, and they will readily follow prey into water.

Wolves would probably go in water from a young age and progress in that.

Also, i would say the most common language for a wolf is body language through play, aggression ect:

Wolves love to play, shouldering one another, bumping bodies together, flopping tails over each other's backs, and leaping up placing forepaws around other' necks. Play especially in pups, develops strength and hunting skills, and aids in establishing pack communication and hierarchy. The intention to play is often signaled by the gesture well known to dog owners of dropping the front quarters into a crouch position, with smiling face and wagging tail. Adult wolves stage mock fights, play chase, and leap on each other. The ambushing of unwary pack members is a favorite game.
