“How do I know that my beloved dog is okay?”. “How do I know that I am doing everything right when dealing with my dog and that he has a beautiful life with me that makes him completely happy?” These are questions that many dog owners ask themselves.
The likelihood that your Canadian buddy will be happy is especially high when he is busy. You can do this by spending a lot of time with it, for example by devoting a large part of the day to playing together. Also – we cannot emphasize this often enough – high-quality food from the specialist trade is decisive for maintaining physical and mental health and thus for his positive mood. Ultimately, only the hormonal picture provides the ultimate information about the satisfaction of your beloved four-legged friend.
Since all dogs are descended from wolves, all canine four-legged friends have a very similar type of language. The dog communicates through body language and sounds. All dogs – regardless of whether they have a short or long snout, a short or long tail – express themselves in the same way. However, it should be noted that some dog breeds may no longer be properly understood by other conspecifics due to their outbred, degenerate appearance, including the docked tail.
By the way, dogs only learned to smile from humans. Barring your teeth is even considered a sign of aggression among wolves. Today’s dog, however, has adapted so much to its masters and mistresses that it also uses showing teeth as a greeting signal.
Here we show you a few of the unmistakable signs that give a lot of information about whether your dog feels right at home with you and with his life.
1) The rod swings
If the dog is happy, its tail swings from left to right and describes an approximately 120-degree angle. In dogs with short or docked tails, or with rolled tails, the base of the tail is particularly meaningful. With the canine colleagues who have a short tail, the entire rear part often gets in motion when wagging.
2) The pupils are open
You can tell from wide pupils that your dog is happy about something. Similar to humans, in whom the pupils dilate when they see something beautiful. Of course, the overall appearance of the eyes is crucial: When Bello’s eyes shine and appear lively, you can be quite sure: Your sweetheart is fine.
3) Tail-wagging flocks
In general, a slightly prancing gait, a relaxed posture of the tail and normally set ears are indicators that your dog is experiencing inner happiness. Sometimes our canine colleagues also express their joy in the fact that they blackwirl around their loved ones, mostly wagging their tails.
4) Exuberant behavior
You can also tell from high-spirited behavior such as jumping around, running in circles, short bells and the like that your four-legged friend is having a lot of fun.
5) He asks you to play
In addition, if your beloved dog is doing well, he will show you that by asking you to play. The dog does this, for example, by briefly jumping into the air with parallel front legs. Make sure you get infected by his silliness and romp around together. Because that increases the fun on both sides.
Please note, however, that the final game request from you as
Should go out of higher rank.
6) He focuses on you and the task
If you employ your dog in a species-appropriate way, so that it is always well utilized, it shows its joy in playing together – and in the moment itself – by concentrating on its human roommate and the task to be mastered. That is pure situational joy.
7) He’s a cuddle cheek
Of course, dogs also show joy when they go to their humans to cuddle with them.
8) He seeks the closeness of his master or mistress
It stands to reason: seeking closeness is a sign that he is happy with you. He shows you this by coming to you regularly or simply lying quietly next to you. Lying next to you in a calm or asleep state is a sure sign that you are fine.
9) He gives you his paw
This gesture can also have a demanding component. The dog may beg or appease by pawing. But it can also generally express that he is happy to be with you.
10) His reaction when you get home
Last but not least, his behavior when you unlock the door shows that he is happy to finally see you again. The dog can already experience the feeling of “finally” after you have been away for only twenty minutes. Sometimes his joy is so great that he has not seen you in ages. It may not come as a surprise: Of course, this is one reason why you as the owner make him happy and that you make a lot or everything right when dealing with him.
We wish you and your canine friend that you have a lot of fun together. Always make yourself aware that it will rub off positively on you when Bello is doing well. Because there is hardly a joy that is as contagious as that of the beloved dog.
