You are a dog person? You want to pet them wherever you are? However, not everything you do makes them happy.

The truth is that the way people show their love to each other is very different from what dogs actually want. We love to embrace them, but they don't really like it. So, if you want to get a dog to like you, it would be great if you learn how to express love in the "dog language", as outlined in the article below.

That's right. For dogs that are a bit "plump", relying on them is a way to show love.

If you notice, you will see many times the dog tries to lie on you, even lying on your feet. That's the "cuddling" way of dogs.

2. Raise your eyebrows when looking into your dog's eyes

Dogs don't like "face to face" with humans. They will feel tense, uncomfortable, and even in many cases, looking into a dog's eyes can stimulate their aggressive nature.

However, it can not be denied the fact that dog owners love to look into the wet eyes and filled with the "cute" in it. So how to be good for both?

Simply put, every time you do, raise your eyebrows constantly. According to a study conducted by behavioral animals, that action will be interpreted as a signal of love. Then the dog's brain will increase oxytocin - the love hormone in humans, and the more you move your face, the more the effect will increase.

3. Chat with your dog

Taking the dog for a walk, or simply taking it with you when you go for a run, is a "amorous gesture" method. Not only will your dog be in good health and less active, but it will also help him understand how much you love him.

According to a study published in Dog Time, walking the dog is a good way to help dogs understand who is taking care of them. Feed, pet, guide again, dogs understand their owners love me.

Dogs also love us to massage their ears. According to Dog Time, this action will make them feel really ... infatuated, because their ears have a lot of nerves responsible for stimulating endorphins - a hormone for positive emotions, playful.

In fact, this is also the hormone released when humans use drugs. So we can say, dogs are very "addicted" to this.

7. Feed it by your hand

Letting your dog eat food in your hand is more effective than letting him eat in a bowl. They will learn to relax with their owners faster, and you can also teach them to slow down, not to be "hyperactive" when they see food as adults.

After all, people and dogs are bound to be best friends.
