We all know that dogs are intelligent and loyal creatures, but did you know that dogs have unique ways of expressing their love for humans? Here are 10 signs that prove your dog is showing his love for you.
When you and your dog share a long look, your dog is "hugging you with his eyes".
Leaning is also a symbol of affection. Sometimes your dog is leaning on you not because he is nervous, but because he thinks you can protect him and keep him safe.
Yawning is contagious between humans. But did you know that dogs also yawn when someone they love yawns? His affection for you enables him to empathize with you.
Did you know we can read a dog's facial expressions? A study found that when dogs see an item they know and have already bonded with, they lift their eyebrows (especially their left). But when they see an item they don't like or don't recognize, there's a lot less facial movement (except for movement of the right brow).
Once a dog finishes his meal, his next action can signify what's most important to him besides eating. If your dog cuddles with you after eating, it's a strong sign that they do indeed love you.
If your dog is calm when you leave, it means your dog loves and trusts you and is confident that you will come back. If your dog panics, it means he has separation anxiety.
When seeing you coming home, your dog greets you with his tail wagging, a favorite toy in tow, and jumps all over the place like a crazy kangaroo, which is his distinctive way of showing his love for you.
If your dog wants to sleep on your bed, even if you don't allow it, he definitely loves you.
When your dog brings you his favorite toy, it may mean he wants to play with you. Wanting to play with you is a sign of affection in itself. It may also mean he considers you as his pack leader and he wants to please you by offering you his best possession.
If your dog loves you, he will fully enjoy all the love and affection you give it.
