1 – Leaning on you
Sometimes a dog sticks to his master because he is anxious, needs him to do something or wants to bring him somewhere. But often, it is also an important symbol of affection. Even if your pet relies on you simply because he is nervous and seeks to be reassured, it is proof that he thinks that you’re there to protect him and keep him safe! A good proof that he considers you the person who watches over him.
2 – Watching you leave calmly
Some people think that if their dogs panic when they leave the house, it’s because they want to stay with them and that’s how they show their love. But according to Gregory Berns, dog specialist, everything would not be so simple …
If your dog panics when you leave, it is more anxiety and fear of loneliness than a real revealer of feelings. On the other hand, when your dog accepts that you leave and remains calm and quiet, it is because he loves you deeply and trusts you. He knows you will come back.
3 – Lifting and wiggling eyebrows
Many people think that the dog’s tail can read his emotions. But his facial expressions are also an accurate indicator.
In a study conducted in Japan, dogs were put in the presence of their masters, foreigners, canine toys, and objects they do not like.
At the sight of their owners, they lifted their eyebrows, especially the left. On the other hand, when they saw a stranger, their faces were much more fixed, and only the right eyebrow rose.
In the presence of a toy, it was the left eyebrow that moved and wrinkled. But when it was the turn of the object they did not like, the reaction of the right eyebrow was not long in coming! According to research, this proves that dogs are more reserved when they are with people they do not know or little, or in the presence of a person they don’t like.
4 – Cuddling with you after a meal
In his book “How dogs love us,” Gregory Berns explains that if a dog comes to hug you after eating, it is because he loves you and needs you close to him.
Everyone knows that pets, and dogs in particular, are very attracted to food. But once they’ve got it, they would not theoretically “need us anymore,” that’s where they do things without calculating. In other words, if your dog comes to you after a good meal, it is because he loves you very much and for good!
5 – Yawning when you yawn
Yawning is contagious. But did you know it was not just for humans? Indeed, dogs are so close to men that they yawn very often to be influenced by the people they love. Their masters, in the first place, obviously.
A recent study has shown that when a human yawn is because he has just seen someone yawning, it proves that he has empathy for him. Hard to say for dogs. But in any case, it necessarily means that something happens between the two individuals and that a connection exists!
6 – Freaking out when you return
We all feel a bit special when we come home and our dog greeted us, with his tail moving in all directions. We’re right to feel important because, in these moments, your pet shows you his love in the truest way!
7 – Sleeping in your room
Another way to know if your dog really loves you? Watch where he sleeps. If your pet just slips into your bed and does everything to sleep near you, it’s a real proof of love!
According to Gregory Berns, the expert on the canine issue, if your furry friend wants to sleep with you, it’s because he knows you’ll look after him during the night. Indeed, animals know that they are vulnerable during their sleep, and placing their fate in your hands is an important mark of confidence.
