How To Tell Your Dog ‘I Love You’ In A Way They’ll Understand

Do you love your dog? Most dog owners have a special place in their heart for their four-legged friends — they can be the most caring, playful, generous, and emotionally understanding pets out there.

Whether you got your dog from a shelter, a pound, a pet store, or a breeder, every dog deserves a loving home.

While most dogs can tell that you love them from the way you treat them (and the fact that you give them food and a roof over their head), there are lots of ways you can show it.

  1. I do all of these things and I agree with all except that dogs do not like hugs….SOME dogs do not like hugs. My dogs come to me and we have a hugum luvum signal when THEY want hugs….The big dog stands and puts her paws on my shoulders and the little one will climb in my lap and do the same….and THEY initiate the hugs….so not all dogs dislike them.
