Discussion: How Less Affectionate Dogs Express Love And Appreciation
Hiya friends. Not all doggos are as cuddly and affectionate as some of us might hope, but it does not mean these doggos are not capable of feeling love and appreciation, they just have their own special way of showing it! Some doggos express their love through cuddles, some express it by following their human around while careful maintaining their distance, so as to not accidently be toughed or pet. Either way, the human is crucial to this equation!
We believe that one of the best indications of your doggo's love and appreciation for you, is what happens when you are just chilling, just the two of you. One reddit user totally put it into words for us: "My family calls this copilot mode, where the dog is just cruising along with you as you go about your day. All of my family's dogs have done this to some extent, but one dog in particular spent most of her golden years napping eight feet away from wherever my dad was. Any time he'd move from room to room or go outside, she'd wake up, follow him to the new location, and go back to sleep." via tonightbeyoncerides. Now that's love, folks.
See! Just because your doggo does not bombard you with cuddles and demand constant attention does not mean that they don't love you! Like us humans, doggos each have their own unique personalities and no two doggos are the same.
