Puppy Love – How Much Does Your Dog Love You?

They say that a dog is a man’s best friend. They are known for being loving and caring creatures, who, unlike their feline friends, genuinely care about their owners, rather than only caring about when they’re next being fed! But how true is this statement? Do dogs really love their owners, or do they just see you as the source of their food?!

Studies have suggested that dogs really do care for their owners. Researchers studied dogs using an MRI machine to pick up on the brain activity when they’re exposed to the scents of their owners, as well as unfamiliar humans and dogs. The results showed that, when presented with the smell of their owners, the dogs had a positive response.

But is that enough to suggest that our dogs really do love us? Maybe, but just to be sure, here are a few other reasons we think prove how much our canines care.

They Know When You are Sad

If you’re a dog owner, you will probably have noticed that, when you’re feeling sad, your dog responds. They seem to attempt to comfort upset owners, and this has been backed up by research that discovered dogs are more likely to approach a person who is crying than someone who is humming or talking.

They Know When You are Angry

So dogs may not feel guilt per se, but they do seem to be aware when you are angry. You probably know that sheepish look your dog gives you when they do something they shouldn’t be doing, and while they may not feel guilty, we reckon they don’t like it when you’re mad!

They (Might) Know When You are Pregnant

There hasn’t been any solid proof of this, but many women have said that their dog changed its behaviour when its owner became pregnant. They tend to become more attentive, protective and loving, and will often ‘escort’ their expecting owner around!

With all that considered, we think that it’s perfectly reasonable to assume that our dogs really do love us and care about us. They truly are a man’s (and woman’s) best friend. This is why we believe that your dog deserves the best, and that includes training! So, as providers of dog training in Surrey, we would love to have you and your furry friend on board with us.
