The Tell-“Tail” Signs Your Dog Loves and Adores You!
The Spirit of Bo, returning to share more insightful information about your pets! Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us once again. Whether or not you have true love in your life, if you have a dog, then that just might be all the love you need! These lovable creatures are never at a loss for expressing their love to their owners, and they have a variety of ways in which they do that. According to pawnation.com, love from your dog can be displayed in many forms…including…
…wagging his tail. A loose and relaxed wag that eagerly goes side to side or perhaps even in a full circle indicates a deep love for you. And if he goes into the full hindquarters dance, then you are fully immersed in his affection for you.
…following you around. If your dog appears to be your shadow, which can be annoying to you at times, he is merely expressing his sincere devotion to you.
…leaning on you. Yes, sometimes this can be a nuisance, but accept it for what it truly is: deep and unwavering affection for you!
…sniffing your crotch. Embarrassing and strange to you, but this is the dog’s equivalent of a hearty handshake or friendly hello. This is an important greeting for him and he also uses it to gather information about you and your overall well being.
…licking your face. He wants to express to you that he is not a threat and it is also a way to groom you. This solidifies not only the bond you have with him but also shows his deference to you as the pack leader.
…jumping up on you. While we train our dogs NOT to do this, it is an instinctive display of affection. Usually your dog is trying to get to you to lick your face.
So, we hope you feel the love between you and your pet this Valentine’s Day. However, if you have an actual human whom you adore just as much, I advise that you do not defer to these particular expressions to indicate your love. Stick to chocolates, cards, flowers, and the usual expectations that come with the occasion!
