Your dog knows how you feel

Dogs are incredibly perceptive and intelligent creatures. They have an outstanding ability to sense both excitement and stress in a household. They may not be able to talk but just by paying attention, your pet can figure out your moods, emotions.
Here are a few fascinating facts about what they sense about you:

I know you are sad
You may have noticed this: when you are really sad or unfriendly, your pooch acts extra tame and attentive. S/he will reach out to you with a warm and gentle touch. Since you are the centre of his/her entire world, your pet becomes subdued and may refuse food until you cheer up. S/he will try to comfort you by lying at your feet or gently grazing the neck against your legs, or even trying to lick away your tears.
You are neglecting me
Your dog will be able to gauge if you’ve become distant. If another pet, friend or family member diverts your love and attention, s/he will stop cooperating or responding to you, and even look depressed. So, keep loving and spending time with your furry friend at all times.

I’m here to protect you
Dogs have a keen sense of smell, so they are able to sense even a small portion of adrenaline hormones that are associated with fear and danger. That’s why they’ll rush to your rescue and defend you aggressively against your fear. They watch your body language and act accordingly. Keep in mind that any dog, even a gentle one, may try to protect you from people s/he perceives as a threat.

I know you are angry
That guilty look is for real. Your pet always knows when s/he has goofed up. They act submissive, whimper, and avoid your gaze.

I hate family disputes
Even if you have a small argument with any member of family, you may find your furry friend hidden behind the couch or under the bed. Pets understand tension and do not like to be around it.

I know you are sick
If your pooch sniffs a particular area of your body every day, then this is a sign of something wrong; you should seek medical attention. Dogs can detect body odour produced by various diseases. Trained dogs can even alert people right before any kind of seizure.

I know what you intend
Sometimes, when you plan a grooming session or a visit to a vet, your pooch hides or runs away from you. This is because your dog senses what’s on your mind. They can differentiate between a trip to the vet and a normal car ride. Dogs are very good at reading body language and following your gaze.

I know who you like
Your furry friend knows who you like and who you aren’t fond of. Again, they interpret your body language and behaviour around them, and can then smell the chemicals discharged by your body.

I know you are pregnant
Dog’s ability to read the human body language, smell, and behaviour helps him to detect pregnancy. Certain chemical changes in the body, the shape, body language, mood and behaviour of pregnant women can be read easily by dogs.

I know you are the alpha
If you want your dog to behave, then s/he needs to see you as the alpha in the relationship. Always eat first, walk out of the door first, make the dog heel during walks, never let your pet eat from the table – in short be the alpha member.
