This is why dogs follow you into the bathroom.
I never knew this!
written by  Jonathan Maes on August 15th, 2017


Having a loyal pup in the household certainly ensures an incredible 
amount of love from dog to owner, in a true “man’s best friend” fashion. 
Understanding your dog is fairly easy and it’s not hard to understand 
your pup wants to give you some delightful bits of love with kisses, but 
dogs can often behave in a more subtle manner as well.

Unfortunately, not all of us are as good as talking to pets as Dr. 
Doolittle, but here are 12 different signs your dog makes and what your 
pup is actually trying to say to you.

Puppy-Dog Eyes

Of course, this one is a true classic. The puppy-dog eyes are often 
imitated by younger children whenever they really want something, but 
dogs use it to show love and enforce a greater trust between the both of 

Following You Around

Granted, a dog that follows every step you take isn’t always ideal, but 
you can’t deny that it’s absolutely adorable. According to vets, this 
type of followers behavior is simply because it is a dog’s instinct to 
always do things with your family. How cute!

Giving You Little Gifts

Does your pup give you little gifts once a while when you’re not playing 
fetch? It turns out that dogs simply want to share their joy with 
someone else, and there’s no better person to share it with than you!

Cuddling After Dinner

It’s not always a great idea to interrupt your pup while they’re eating 
a meal because they’re often keen on their food, but cuddling with you 
after their bellies are filled shows that dogs feel truly comfortable 
around you.

Licking Your Body or Face

Some people love it, some people find it rather gross, but all dogs like 
giving people a couple of licks once a while. Giving licks is actually 
submissive behavior and helps dogs ease their stress, and it’s also a 
sign of love, of course.

Going Wild Whenever You Return Home

Just like in the movies, the second a dog hears you coming back home 
chaos is ensured – and they’re just overly happy to see you! Their 
enthusiastic response is simply their way of saying “I missed you”.

Knowing When Something Is Wrong

Dogs don’t need to be able to actually talk with their owners to sense 
that something is wrong or if you’re feeling sad. They can read your 
body language really well, and also use their senses to detect if 
something is wrong. They’ll also be more than willing to solace you.

Crawling In Your Bed

Getting up in the morning can be a bit of a pain sometimes, but perhaps 
your loyal pup joins you once in a while in your bed. They don’t just 
sit there because your bed is probably more comfortable, but it’s also 
how they keep you close when you’re not home and away for work, for example.

Raising A Single Paw

Raising one of two paws usually means that your dog is in the mood for 
some playtime or perhaps even hungry. Sometimes, they’ll do this when 
they spot something interesting in their environment.

Leaning Against You
Animal Channel

If a dog is actively leaning against you, it means he or she is looking 
for a bit of extra love and hugs from the owner. Dogs sure love to have 
a bit of attention directed towards them!

Trying To Get Your Opinion

If you ever had the feeling that your dog was looking for your approval 
for something, it’s because pups really appreciate and value your 
opinion. A little love and affection go a long way!

Squinting And Blinking Eyes

When a dog is seemingly playing a lot with his eyes, attention is the 
thing he or she is looking for the most. They’re ready to play and have 
a little bit of quality time with you.
