“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.” – Josh Billings
And it’s true! It’s a famous saying that “a dog is man’s best friend” and he tries to prove it in every bit of his actions. A dog brings a bundle of joy with itself and if you have ever owned a dog then you will understand how fun and awesome it is to have a dog as your friend.
Their unconditional love and incredible loyalty makes us remember them for life. But, did you know that there is meaning behind everything they do?
Yes! Ever noticed your dog randomly coming and sitting on your feet? There is a hidden meaning behind this as well.
Dogs feel jealous when their master shows love or affection towards other animals or even humans. They just want you to be theirs. Just like humans, dogs too have alpha characteristics. They cannot speak but they do know the techniques to express themselves with their actions.
By sitting on their master’s feet, they mark their area. When a dog sits on his master’s feet, he claims his master to be a member of his pack. On the other hand, if your dog is passive and shy, it his way of reassuring himself that you are there for him.
So guys, the next time your dog comes and sits on your feet, always remember either he needs you back or he is just marking his own territory.
