How dogs show their love: 6 signs

Yes, dogs can love people; not only do dog owners know that. But how do the fur noses show their affection? There are several signs by which you can recognize that your four-legged friend loves you.

Dogs are pack animals and you, as the owner, are usually the pack leader in your pet’s eyes. You can tell from the following signs that your dog not only sees you as a “leader” but also loves you as a friend. To express his affection, the dog does not need any words. He shows his love in other ways and with many small gestures.

  1. regular greeting joy

You come home from work, open the front door, and already you hear wildly pattering dog paws approaching. Your dog wags his tail, looks at you joyfully, possibly barks exuberantly, or jumps up at you? Each sign represents: “I’m glad you’re here” and expresses dog love.

  1. trust means love

You can also tell if your dog loves you by the way he trusts you. Does your dog look at you when he doesn’t know what to do or when a situation seems unknown and possibly even dangerous? Then he trusts you and sees you as a social standard. Proximity is also trust: You notice when your dog seeks your proximity – he will not do this if he does not trust you.

  1. physical closeness is emotional closeness

When a dog wants to be physically close to its owner, it usually means that it is also close to you emotionally. When a dog lies down near you or even sleeps snuggled up to you, you can assume that he values your friendship, accepts your protection, and wants to tell you, “I love you.”

  1. your dog wants to lick you

Even female dogs love their puppies after birth by licking them from top to bottom. The dog understands this behavior as an expression of affection – so if he wants to lick you later, this is also a sign of love. A kind of dog kiss, if you will.

  1. your dog wants to play with you

If your dog is standing in front of you with his toy in his mouth, wagging his tail and eyes wide with anticipation, perhaps touching you with his paw or nudging you with his muzzle, this, of course, means that he would like to play with you. No question, a sign of canine love.

  1. show love by caring

If your dog loves you, he wants you to be well. His caring can show itself in several ways. For example, he may protectively place himself in front of you when he sees a potential aggressor on the street. But also taking care of aches and pains shows his love. Does your dog often seek your proximity when you are sick or sad? This is typical behavior for a caring dog.
