5 ways you can tell your dog loves you
The love we have for our dogs is unconditional, but ever wonder if the feeling is mutual? We’ve done some digging and have found a few ways you can tell your dog, borrowed or owned, is feeling happy and showing you affection.
The face says it all
Did you know dogs can smile and grin? They often show affection with theirs faces with a relaxed, open mouth - not a shut, tight grimace. When your furry friend is happy their eyes should also be relaxed and their ears will be held naturally.
It’s all in the tail
A dog’s tail can reveal a lot about how their feeling. A happy loving pup will hold their tail in it natural position and often wag it gently side to side. If they are wagging their entire bottom, well, they are truly happy!
Lean on me
Dogs can often lean on their humans when they are showing affection. When receiving a good cuddle or stroke doggies can lean in, it’s their way of saying “more please!”.
Jumping to see you
We don’t all liked to be jumped on, but dogs love to do so to get closer to their humans face, to give you a “Welcome home!” lick, showing you they’re happy to see you.
If your dog loves to sleep near you, on you or even in your bed it’s way of them showing you they care, it’s their natural way of showing you they are comfortable.
Owners will know their dogs the best, and will often be able to read when they are happy, sad or even unwell. If you’re ever worried about your owned or borrowed dog’s behaviour we can always recommend speaking to your local vet or premium members can always ring our 24/7 vet line, who are always happy to give advice.
