Signs your Dog Loves You

Here are some signs that you can tell if your furry friend is showing love:

Your dog licks you

When your dog licks you, he is showing affection. He could be getting your attention, or perhaps he is getting ready to play with you or just wants to lick you before a big hug.

Your dog wants to sleep close to you.

Wolves sleep naturally cuddled with members of their pack in the wild, just like dogs sleep next to each other. When your furry friend snuggles up next to you or wants to sleep in your room, it’s a sign that he feels safe and he loves you and trusts you.

He welcomes you with love when you arrive home

It does not matter if you have been away from home for a long time or only 10 minutes; your dog will jump on you, lick your face and wag his tail because he is excited and happy to see you. This behavior is his way of telling you that he loves you and misses you.

Your dog gives you puppy dog eyes.

In the wild, wild dogs and wolves use direct eye contact as a sign of aggression to intimidate each other and establish dominance.

Instead, your dog’s eye contact is reserved to express he is comfortable with and trusts you.

Your Dog seeks physical contact

When your puppy wants to show affection, he can give you quick caresses and hugs.

Your Dog shares his toys with you

Another sign you dog loves you, is when he wants to share his toys. This gesture means true love.

Your dog wags his tail

When a dog wags its tail, it shows that he is happy.  

But sometimes dogs don’t always wag their tails when they are happy.  If a dog is wagging his tail but the muscles are stiff, it could mean he’s upset or angry. So be sure to keep that in mind.

He steals your clothes

According to Puppy Leaks, dogs experience the world through smell, so when they love you, they love your scent.

To hold on to that smell, they can steal your clothes. So the next time your dog steals a piece of your clothing, he’s showing you deep adoration.
