As a dog owner, you may have pondered on this question, “Does my dog love me?” True, there are common signs such as wagging its tail or following you around or even getting super excited when you come back home which show its unconditional love. But, are there any other signs which tell you that your dog loves you? Well, here are four signs that tell you if your canine is head over heels for you:Joins You When You Yawn
We all know that yawns are contagious because we have experienced it at some point in our lives. There was a study by Live Science which shows that yawns are not just some random moment of coincidence. According to the study, humans imitate yawns because it is an indirect way of showing empathy. The study also shows that canines are more likely to yawn when their owners do the same. You can test it out by yawning in front of your canine. However, if your canine didn’t recognize the yawn, he/she may not respond to it accordingly.Looks At Your Eyes Directly
If you catch your dog looking at your eyes directly, then you have nothing to fear. In our world, direct eye contact is a way of showing people that we are focused on what is going on at the moment. In the world of canines, direct eye contact has a whole new meaning. In other words, when your canine makes eye contact, it is a way of expressing its love. Canines release oxytocin when it looks into the eyes of their owners. Oxytocin is a hormone which helps form a strong bond between the child and its mother.Moves Its Eyebrows
Did you know that your canine also expresses its affection by moving its eyebrows? According to a Japanese study, canines express their connection with their owners through their eyebrows. The study showed that there was lack of eyebrow movement when the canine met a stranger or an object that it didn’t like. However, when the canine saw its owner, there was significant movement of the eyebrows. You can check if this is true by observing the facial movements of your canine closely.Responds To Your Voice Positively
If your canine responds to your voice positively, then you have a loving dog. The next time you call your canine, pay close attention to its expressions. You will observe that your canine’s face lights up the moment you call its name. Also, your canine will stop whatever it is doing and respond to your calls immediately.These are the four signs which indicate your canine’s unconditional love.
