Does Your Dog Do These 20 Weird Things? Well There's A Reason Why

Does Your Dog Do These 20 Weird Things? Well There’s A Reason Why

    Dogs, I freakin’ love them. I’ve never met a dog I never liked, whereas I meet people I don’t like every freakin’ day. One of the things I like most about dogs is the fact that they can be SUPER weird sometimes.

    I would absolutely love to know what my dog is thinking, too. Like, what goes through their furry little minds!? Do they really enjoy sniffing butts THAT much!? What is he dreaming about? Is he even dreaming? Can dogs dream!? So many questions I’ll never be able to know the answer to.

    However, there is a lot of science behind the different positions you find your dog in from time to time, so I’ve listed the 20 most common ones below for you. Enjoy!

    1. Puppy Dog Eyes

    Possibly one of the most adorable things your dog will do to you (and usually ensures they get an extra treat!) But the most adorable thing about this is that it genuinely means that he loves and trusts you very much.

    2. Belly Curl

    A dog who sleeps on his belly with his paws either tucked up beneath him or by his side means they aren’t getting good quality sleep – they can’t reach REM because in this position their muscles can’t properly relax.

    3. “Passed Out” 

    When your pup is passed out completely, meaning they’re laying on their back with their limbs drooping onto of themselves, it probably means they’re overheating – and this the best way for them to cool off! Also, if both paws are draped across its chest, it means “leave me alone!”

    4. Staring

    You will notice even low maintenance dogs have a need for your attention. Here again, intense staring is not her way of being creepy. She just wants your affection.

    5. Tongue Out

    When a dog has its tongue lolling out of its mouth, it’s a sign that they are super relaxed, happy and mellow!
