You may wonder if your dog understands every word you try to say. Indeed, trained dogs instinctively understands commands like “sit”, “jump”, “roll” or “run”, but what about other important thoughts you want them to know? You may also be puzzled at times, when your dog tries to act like he wants to tell something. The thing is dogs can’t talk. They can’t even show appreciation or comfort you in bad times.
It’s not only through wagging tails and big warm eyes that you can feel dogs can deeply understand your feelings towards them. It’s very much true to dogs that actions speak louder than words. The eyes and tail may signal their excitement but it’s merely their emotions sent to you that give you the feeling that your dog understands what you’re saying. If you want to be sure that your pooch knows how much you care, here are ways to show that you love them:
1. Take a walk together
Lovers like to walk together at the park. Dogs feel the same happiness to be walking with you too. Take that walk and spend time with your pooch. It may not take you much time to walk around. Your dog may like to run or play with other dogs also. Take that time to sit and show the dog that you’re being supportive to his interests.
2. Share your thoughts
Treat dogs like friends and not merely pets. They also love to hear stories and life experiences. It’s important to keep the conversation going to avoid them from getting bored. Share your thoughts. They may not respond to what you’re saying, but they are listening. A good conversation goes with a good speaker and a good listener.
3. Take time to sleep together
It will make the dog feel secure and comfortable to sleep beside you. It may not be as often as it can be, but make sure you spend time to sleep with your dog. Some dogs may feel they are outcasts or isolated if they are being restricted to go inside certain rooms. Don’t be so hard on reprimanding your pooch. Stay calm and avoid making them feel that they are not welcome inside your house.
4. Read to your dog
If you are a bookworm, you can read to your dog and share that wonderful story you’re reading. They may also love bedtime stories like kids. The fact that you spend time to read a story for them is a good way to tell them that you love them. Your dog just love to hear your voice and spend time with you.
5. Exercise together
Your dog will gladly appreciate to know you care about their health. It’s not easy to say, “I worry about your weight doggie,” because the dog will not understand such thought. Exercising with your dog or taking them to workout camps makes it easy to relay the message that you care about their health. Encourage your dog to meet fitness goals and show support in his workout. In return, your dog can be a good workout body for you. Be a model to your pooch. Maintain a healthy body to entice that doggie eagerness to be healthy too.
Don’t keep those feelings from your dogs. They have the right to feel loved too. Show them you care the way they have shown they love you. Communicate the way they relay messages through strong and sincere emotions. You and your dog must create a mutual connection with how both sides will understand. It may sound complicated, but with both of you caring for each other, it will be simple as talking to the same kind.
