a cute dog plays with his human

There’s no doubt in my mind that dogs have emotions. They feel joy after a job well done. They feel sad when a pack member passes away. And they feel love for their family members – their pack.

Dog Emotions Are Different

However, it’s important to remember that those emotions are different from our own. The feelings that dogs experience aren’t connected to complex thoughts. They don’t have ulterior motives or doubt. Their emotions are pure and honest. Your dog isn’t lying to you when he communicates that he loves you.

The more you fulfill your dog’s needs, the more this connection will develop between you. There’s nothing better than coming home from a bad day and having your dog there to support you. No judgment. No questions. Just love!

Dog’s Pick Up on Our Energy

But remember, how we feel affects our dogs. If you are upset after a long day of work, your dog won’t understand why, but he will pick up on your energy and body language. He will interpret this as unbalanced energy, and if you don’t have your leadership down pat, it can lead to behavior issues. Make sure you are fulfilling your dog’s needs first.

Our dogs give us so much and ask so little. If we provide them with exercise, discipline, then affection, we can really appreciate man (or woman’s) best friend and the love they have to offer.

Stay calm and assertive!

Tell us some of the ways that your dog expresses emotion to get you to do what she wants.
