Your Dog Says 'I Love You' by Doing This

By Buzz60

Is your pooch just being annoying or is there a real reason for that behavior? Man's best friend has special ways of showing that they love us back.

Besides rolling around in your expensive sheets, there is a real reason Fido wants to crawl in bed with you. Dogs are pack animals who sleep together for warmth and protection. When a dog tries to sleep with it's human family, that's a way of saying that they trust you to protect them while they are sleeping and that they want to keep you warm.

An after-meal cuddle isn't a thank you for the kibble, it's actually a genetically programmed response to your pet's wild pack dog ancestry. Curling up with you after a meal is a sign that your dog considers you part of the pack.

Take a moment to play when your puppy brings you a toy. Since toys are a big part of their lives, bring you a toy is the equivalent of people giving each other gifts. A few minutes of play is the best way to say "thank you."

Sitting on your feet is a canine sign of saying "she's mine." This territorial gesture marks you as your dog's territory and lets others know to back off.

Now who wants a game of fetch? That's a good boy!
