Dogs cannot talk, but they have many other ways of showing affection. Several veterinarians were interviewed about how dogs express love. Here are some of the surprising ways! A dog may bring its owner a broken toy and start whining. The dog is expecting its owner to fix the toy. Veterinarian Michelle Szydlowski explained this action shows the dog’s affection and faith in its owner’s intelligence. Veterinarian Sara Ochoa added that if the toy is not broken, the dog is showing love and trust by sharing its favorite toy with its owner. Szydlowski also revealed dogs may try to guard people who are eating. A dog does this to protect its owner and allow them to eat comfortably. However, Szydlowski warns that this behavior can make a dog become too territorial. Another veterinarian, Jamie Richardson, explained dogs learn the names of people, too. Dogs will get very excited when they hear the names of their favorite people.
