Let's touch on that today.
How exactly does a dog show affection?
I know for me personally, I am able to read my huskies behavior very easily.
For two reasons - 1) because huskies tend to wear their emotions on their face. 2) I have always paid VERY close attention to know the signs of how my pups are feeling. I have young children and to me, I need to know what's going on with their behavior (the dogs) every moment of the day.
Two of my huskies are VERY loving. Love to snuggle, cuddle, lick and lay on me!
Whether they are bombarding me like in the photo above.
Snuggle time on my chair ^
Or just jumping up eye level with me to say a hello.
No matter which one of these they do, they are always showing love in one form or another.
Tell 'tail' signs your dog is showing affection -
- Tail wagging
If your dogs tail has a helicopter effect, or wagging crazy out of control with a big 'ol grin on their face, chances are they are feeling affectionate.
That is not always the case, nor is it the case very often at all. A dog likes to lean into their humans to feel closer to them, and feel secure. They are showing you affection when this happens.
We all know it is not always welcome having a big dog jump on you when you walk through the door, however, do you know one of the reasons they do this? Dogs are far away from our faces, and they want to be closer to us. A reason they jump is simply to get closer to our faces and say hello!
What do you take out of this?
Learning to read your own dogs body language can help you understand when your pup feels anxious, happy, affectionate, or upset. So pay some extra attention, and learn a little about your dog ;)
