How dogs are showing their love
There are various languages for expressing love. Dogs are our greatest friends who will never leave us, and they have their own love language to show us how much they love us. It has been proven that a dog is a man’s best friend. Dogs are intelligent and lovable creatures, and above all, they are loyal to their owners. They can offer unconditional love for you too.
Your pets feel your emotional state and respond accordingly. Most people think that dogs are good only if they listen to what you say, but in fact, this is false. If you constantly scold or threaten them, they will do what you ask them to do, but it won’t be out of love, but for fear of you harming them. Dogs are vibrant beings, full of energy and strength. If you can use that energy to your advantage, you will notice how positively they can affect you, your spiritual and mental health.
How often do you walk your dog?
Do you think just ten minutes is enough to walk a dog? You are wrong. Dogs need a lot of physical activity to discharge their excess energy. Of course, it depends a lot on what kind of dog you have. Walking with a dog can also help you with your own fitness and physical health. Playing with your dog may just be a nice and fun time for you, but spending precious moments with you is very important to your pet.
One piece of proof that your dog loves you is if he/she comes to cuddle with you after eating. We all know that dogs are very single-minded about their food. However, what a dog does after eating can tell you a lot. If after eating good food, your dog wants to be petted, it is a clear sign that he/she loves you and that you are very important to him or her.
While some people who keep dogs in their homes do not allow their dogs to sleep with them, there are others who love to sleep with their beloved dogs. If you are someone who likes to sleep with your dog and your dog is in bed as long as you are in it, it means that he loves you and is loyal to you.
Howling when you leave home
Does your dog howl when you leave without him? Noticing that your dog is howling at your departure is not a good sign. This is proof that the dog is feeling anxious and distrustful. If it’s the opposite and your dog stays home alone without howling, you can be sure that the dog trusts you and loves you.
I believe everyone's dog is happy when they see their owner. If you feel the same when you see your dog, then there is no need to explain that you missed your dog too and could hardly wait to see him again.
Looking into their eyes
If your dog is looking into your eyes steadily and for a long time, you can know that it shows love, confidence and a sense of security. Eye contact is effective for both humans and dogs. Keeping eye contact is good for training your dog, and using this type of communication will help to develop a deep connection with your pet. However, excessive or glaringly forced eye contact will make your dog feel uncomfortable and he will eventually turn his eyes away.
Wherever you are on the bed or the floor, if you notice your dog is leaning against you, you can be sure that your pet trusts you and feels safe and relaxed. Of course, in some situations, you will notice that he comes to lean on you when he is scared. That's because he considers you as his/her protector.
Your pet is a thief
It is well-known that dogs are very attached to their owners and that their main sense is smell, which means that dogs love the smell of their owner. Do not be surprised if you are missing some slippers or socks. Because dogs love your scent, they will gladly slip into your shoes and rifle through a dirty laundry basket to find your stuff. So if you notice that you are missing some clothes or shoes, you will know who the culprit is. Just don't expect them to tell you where they put it. If you have a problem with your dog swiping your belongings or shoes, try buying them rubber toys that will occupy them so they can to forget about stealing your stuff.
Bringing their favorite toy
If you notice that your pet is bringing you their favorite toy, it may not always mean that it’s playtime. You are like a "pack leader" for your dog, and he is just bringing you the most valuable and loving thing he has. Isn't that a real "dog" characteristic?
You know how much dogs love to lick you. It's a simple example to see if your dog loves you. Swinging his tail, uncontrolled hopping, and an unlimited number of licks – these are all ways the dog lets you know he loves you a lot.
Another way to make sure that your pet loves you is to give him the unconditional love he deserves, and he will surely return it back double. Another thing to keep in mind is that even if dogs do not live as long as we do, and they may just be there for a comparatively short part of your life, you can still know that you have been with them all of their life.
