The following are some of the signs your dog may love you:
Your dog will give you lots of attention when he sees you. He will run up to greet you and sit next to you while looking at you with big eyes. If he does not do this, it means that he doesn’t trust you enough or thinks that something bad might happen if he does so.
He will not bark when you come near him.
If he looks at you long time, then he will start to lick his lips and look at you with a very interested face. This behavior indicates that he wants to say something but cannot because of his tongue being stuck in his mouth. His tail wags back and forth slowly as if he is asking for your opinion or approval.
You can hear him purring. This means that he feels happy and contented.
His ears perk up when you pet them. This indicates that he likes it when you pet his head. (This behavior is called affectionate behaviour)
If your dog shows these signs, then he probably loves you!
However, there may be times when something within your dog makes him feel uncomfortable. Like one time you scold him for doing something he shouldn’t do, or maybe you are being mean to him in some way.
He will avoid you or move away whenever he sees you.
He may start barking or growling when you come close to him.
You can hear him snarl or whine. This means that he does not like what you are doing. (Bad habits like pulling hairs, hitting, or scolding are discouraged)
His ears move back. This means that he doesn’t like that particular thing that you are doing to him.
You see his eyes narrow as if to squint. This means that he is feeling defensive or aggressive.
You can see his teeth. This means he is not happy with what you are doing to him. (It may result in a bite)
These signs show that your dog does not like you. However, you should never force a dog to do something it doesn’t like to do. If your dog doesn’t like something, then don’t force him to do it.
