Every dog owner has a special corner for their beloved four-legged companion in their heart. Both owner and dog share a strong bond that lasts forever. However, many dog owners are curious to know if their dog really loves them? Although some dogs have complicated behaviors, so finding out if your dog loves you the same way you do is quite confusing. The following are some ways to help you find out how your cute pet feels about you.
Soft & Relaxed Eye Contact
Believe it or not, but naturally, dogs are quite reluctant to make eye contact. However, eye contact means several things. When dogs stare at you, it could be due to discomfort, or they don’t like you. It gives you the same feeling when someone stares at you, making you feel awkward and uncomfortable. However, when your four-legged companions look at you with soft, relaxed eyes, it is because they trust and love you. It’s cute, isn’t it?
Wagging the Tail
A dog’s tail can show a myriad of emotions. When a dog meets you with a full-body wiggle, it means they love you a lot and are happy to see you. Also, they will start wagging their tail to show love to someone special, especially their owner.
Dogs have their own mood to pamper you. So, when they decide to cuddle with you, they will do that. But, if you try to cuddle them forcefully, odds are, they will feel uncomfortable, stressed or may not want any close contact with you.
Greet You Happily
Let’s face it, after a long hectic day, one of the best feelings in the world is when your pup runs and greets you at the door. Trust me; this feeling is beyond words. Your pooch is showing genuine love because it is happy to see you. Even if you are already busy with other activities and your dog still greets you, believe me, you are very lucky.
