If your dog ever puts his paw on you, listen up! While you might brush it off, this act is actually your pup’s way of saying “I love you.”
We pet our dogs to show our love, that is their way of doing it back! However, the action can also be attributed to other feelings, like hunger or insecurity. It all depends on the context.
If your dog is showing signs of anxiety while pawing at you, it could mean he is feeling insecure and looking for you to comfort him. However, if continual pawing is related to begging for food, it’s best to ignore the behavior.
