#3 – Jumping on You
While this is typically undesirable behavior, dogs jump on people because they like them. When you come home after work or from running some errands, your dog is excited and wants to rejoice at your return! While it’s better to teach dogs another, more acceptable way to share their excitement, jumping should be seen as a display of affection.
#4 – Wagging Tails
Although tail wagging isn’t always a sign of happiness, it’s generally displayed towards dog owners as a means of affection. When a dog is wagging his tail loosely, and his body language is showing other signs of comfort and excitement, it’s safe to say he’s very happy you’re around!
#5 – Following You Around
Dogs will follow their owners for a variety of reasons, including their knowledge that you’re typically the source of their food and shelter. But dogs are also pack animals that enjoy being with their families, and following you around is just another clue that your pup likes to stick by your side because he loves you. So even though she might get in the way from time to time, it’s important to remember that she simply just wants your company.
