    5 Signs That Your Dog Actually Loves You

    We love our dogs as if they are members of our families – because to us they really are! We show our dogs we love them in so many ways outside of just their regular care and maintenance, by doing things like buying them special treats and toys. But how do our dogs tell us they love us? We have a good feeling that they do, but it would be awesome to know for sure. Sometimes it might feel like a one-sided relationship, but if your dog does these 5 things for you–then this means they love you right back just as much!
    #1 – Playing and Roughhousing With You

    While it seems to come at the most inopportune times, our dogs sometimes get playful and try to wrestle with us. This is their natural way of playing! If you’ve ever watched your pup play with another dog, you’ll recognize he’s offering the same behavior to you. Doing a little wrestling with your pooch is certainly safe and fun, and will even give you a new game to play to keep your relationship strong!

    #2 – Sleeping With You

    Dogs are pack animals, and in the wild wolves and other canids sleep huddled together in packs. This helps keep them warm and help them feel safe. It’s also a way for your dog to show you he cares. He wants to be near you, and this is his natural way of showing you he feels comfortable and sees you as family.

    #3 – Jumping on You

    While this is typically undesirable behavior, dogs jump on people because they like them. When you come home after work or from running some errands, your dog is excited and wants to rejoice at your return! While it’s better to teach dogs another, more acceptable way to share their excitement, jumping should be seen as a display of affection.

    #4 – Wagging Tails

    Although tail wagging isn’t always a sign of happiness, it’s generally displayed towards dog owners as a means of affection. When a dog is wagging his tail loosely, and his body language is showing other signs of comfort and excitement, it’s safe to say he’s very happy you’re around!

    #5 – Following You Around

    Dogs will follow their owners for a variety of reasons, including their knowledge that you’re typically the source of their food and shelter. But dogs are also pack animals that enjoy being with their families, and following you around is just another clue that your pup likes to stick by your side because he loves you. So even though she might get in the way from time to time, it’s important to remember that she simply just wants your company.
    he is your friend and protector, he will love you unconditionally, you owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion
