Dogs are pretty straightforward when showing happiness. So, it’s easy for dog parents to tell if their furry love is happy just by looking at the dog happiness signs he/she shows them every day.
And since our beloved pups can’t speak it out, it’s our job to figure out the meanings of their behaviors to make sure they’re happy and healthy.
Here’s how to know if your dog is happy (and we hope she/he really is).
10. Your dog greets you when you get home
Depending on your dog’s personality, he/she may be jumping up and down in excitement or patiently waiting for you as you turn the key to unlock the door. While a dog’s greeting style can vary, the message is the same: your dog is happy to see you.
When your pup consistently meets you at the door, it’s one of the signs of a happy dog who is clearly eager to interact with you. Plus, this also shows that you two share a powerful and positive bond.
However, if your dog’s greeting enthusiasm suddenly begins to decrease, you might consider consulting your vet to rule out any lethargy-related issues.
