Reasons Why Dogs Do What They Do

Dogs are incredibly loving and loyal animals.  They’ll be your best friend for life!  But did you know that there is a reason behind every dog’s actions? 

Here is a guide to help you better understand your dog!



When He Brings You Gifts…

Has your dog ever dropped something right into your lap? Well, the reason is a dog likes to show off his ability, and wants to give you a present. The presents he gives you is probably something he wants as well. Dogs are very smart!

When He Sits On Your Feet…

When She Trashes Your Couch…

It’s probably because she has separation anxiety and can’t stand to be away from you for too long. Puppies tend to do this because they aren’t used to being away from you yet. Take your dog on walks to help them release energy!

When He Leans Against Your Leg…

If your dog leans against your leg, it’s his way of asking for reassurance. He wants you to reiterate your love for him and he’s seeking affection, so give it to him.

When She Hunches Over…

When a dog hunches over, they are making themselves unnoticeable. It’s a survival instinct that all animals have, and it’s most likely found in abused animals. Be gentle and show her some affection!
