They Look at You in The Eye.
When your pups look at you they’re “hugging you with their eyes.” Hare explains that oxytocin – a chemical released that helps bonding between new mothers and their babies – is also released when dogs play, touch or stare at their owners. That was Brian Hare, director of the Duke Canine Cognition Center said.
They sleep with you.
We’ve all dog owners wake up with a puppy paw in our back or doggie-breath in our face. Dogs in the wild sleep as a pack which is a sign of being loyal. Moreover, when a dog lives with or is good friends with another dog, they want to sleep together too – but only if they are allowed by the other pup. That means that if your dog sleeps with you is because he consideres you as a good friend.
They Are Always Empathetic
Have you been sad or feeling bad and your dogs get closer to you? It is known that dogs are social animals that is why they have an instinct to take care of their friends or people they considere important. Studies have shown that dogs have very close and similar behaviors to human toddlers. Along the study they set the dog’s owner and stranger 6 feet apart and asked each individual to talk, hum or pretend to be sad or pretend to cry. The final result of the study was that dogs can see emotions and show empathy when you or a stranger are in emotional distress.
They Will Lean On You
Dogs have the same behavior than humans. When your dog leans on you is because maybe he is scared and is looking for being safe of comfort being close to his owner.
