6 Ways To Show Love To Dogs

Love and yummy doggie treats are two of the most gratifying things your dog can receive from you.

You may be able to tell if your dog loves you but, have you ever wondered how you can tell them how much you love them? You may be having conversations with your pooch and telling them how much you love them several times a day, no matter how fond you are of them, communicating takes a little effort. By showing your dogs how much you adore them, you can develop a deep, meaningful bond. Of course, giving them the best dog treats is a sure way to express how much you love them, but here are

6 Ways You Can Show Your Doggo How Much You Love Them

1. Daily Play-time

A fun way to express how much we love our dogs is through doggy play-time. By stocking up on fun dog toys and engaging puzzle games you can make sure that you, as well as your dog are able to interact and play. Games like tug of war or fetch can greatly help strengthen the relationship you have with your dog. Studies suggest creating an agility course and teaching your dog (with yummy doggy treats of course!) to navigate it would build confidence and strengthen your relationship.

2. Dog Voice

Doggos can actually understand us better than we think. Having that one-sided conversation with your furry friend is as crazy as you might believe. If you have the habit of using baby-talk with your doggo, we have good news for you- they actually love it! We also suggest you to use their favourite words like doggy treats, outside, walk, good boy/girl, etc.

3. Eye Contact

Eye Contact with Dog

Your dog's eyes express a lot of their emotions and thoughts. You can speak with them using the same eye contact as a language. It's a way for dogs to convey "I love you" by giving you long, lingering eye contact. When dogs and humans share a friendly glance it is said that the level of oxytocin, the 'love hormone’ increases.

This hormone is the key to building and strengthening your relationship with your doggo. 

Studies also show that if your dog is giving you puppy eyes it means you need to treat them to the best dog treats ( we recommend Dogsee crunch coconut treats ).

4. Surprise Treats

Giving your dog a good meal or treat every now and then is one of the best ways to show them that you care. Your dog will enjoy the surprise, and you'll enjoy seeing their expression when they realise that they're getting something special. If your dog is a fan of dairy you can even get him cheese sticks online.

5. Listen To Them

Whether with dogs or humans, good communication is the key to a good relationship. By educating yourself about a dog's body language, you can be better prepared to show your pet how much you love and care about them. Understanding your dog's need for space plays a major role in showing that you love them. Most dogs do not like hugs as it increases or triggers their stress and anxiety levels. At times your dog feels super stressed. Understand that they need their space and comfort them with a few doggy treats.

6. Ear Rubs

Last but definitely not the least - ear rubs! Have you noticed that whenever you scratch your dog's ears they slowly lean onto your hands, sometimes drifting into a sort of trance? That's because ear rubs quite literally make your dogs high. Dogs' ears have a lot of nerve endings that send impulses all through the body and cause the release of endorphins. These hormones mimic the effect of painkillers in dogs and help them relieve any amount of ache, pain or stress. It's a sure shot way to express how much you love your doggo.


We are sure your dogs know how much you love them but just in case, now you know how to tell them that you love them. Just keep in mind that every dog expresses their need to be loved differently, the key is to not stress about it and let your dogs experience a positive reaction. If nothing works, bribery with doggie treats helps too!
