For example, if you’re, nervous or intimidated, you won’t be making eye contact. On the other hand, if you feel comfortable you’ll hold someone’s gaze dogs tend to do the same in some cases, they’ll stare at objects or people perceiving them as a friend or foe, with their pet parent.

They probably smelled each other’s butts. Why? Because that’s where scent markers are located the best and most accessible way for your dog to smell you and associate your smell with comfort is by stealing your shoes, it’s at their height, and it probably reeks of you, while it’s probably not ideal to have you hide Your shoes from your dog, it’s important to understand where they’re coming from maybe set aside a pair specifically for your pet to play with.

5.     They respond to your command

Relationships with humans and with animals are based on mutual respect for one another, especially if you want to form a lifelong bond with them. If your pet listens to you and responds positively to what you ask them to do, they have developed a sense of respect for you. Adoration came before respect.

Remember that dogs are friendly and will play with you no matter what, but if they obey you when they formed a connection with you, that’s respect. However, their response should be so because they trust you and not out of fear of punishment or negative reinforcement.

6.     They want physical touch, hugs, cuddles, and belly rubs

While it’s important to understand that some breeds of dogs are more overly affectionate than others. They all have one way or another of showing their adoration towards their pet parent, and this way usually involves physical touch. Not all dogs are fond of hugs, some might not like belly rubs and some don’t respond well to cuddles.

However, even the most conservative and seemingly non-affectionate dogs have one way or another physical touch, to show you that they love you. For example, they may lean on you sleep beside you rub up against your leg, and several other similar subtle ways of showing that they trust you.

7.     By giving you presents.

Your dog might not wrap a pretty little bow around a twig when they’re giving it to you, but it’s the thought that counts, and in this case the thought is, to love and trust dogs that present their pet parents with their favorite toys things they find in the Street or just chew up remains of whatever they laid their paws on, do so to show you that they appreciate you, it’s learned behavior, they see you giving them presents for a job well done and are trying to mimic the same behavior.

Their presence is often things that they find enjoyable. For example, you might not go crazy at the sight of a chewed-up ball, but the pet will lose its mind over it and the fact that they’re giving it to you shows that they love you enough and trust you enough with something special to them.

8.     Falling asleep beside you.

Studies have shown that pets who sleep beside their owners tend to trust them more than those that don’t while it might be a little inconclusive, considering how not all animals respond in the same way, it’s often believed that dogs will only sleep with you if they know That you’re going to be there for them when they wake up, they find it more comfortable to sleep with you, because they want to be able to look at you when they wake up smell the sheets. That probably smells like you, and sometimes even asks for physical touch before going to bed pets sleeping beside us are adorable. It’S made even more wholesome by the fact that they do it because they trust us.

9.     They’re relaxed

When you’re around your pet tends to feel a lot more comfortable in your presence. They ease up, they lean forward and they waggle their tail. All signs that show that your dog is delighted to see you are the most clear-cut sign that your dog trusts. You are that they seem relaxed in your presence.

This doesn’t always equate to jumping up and down. While that might be a sign of happiness to see you or eagerness to play, they tend to be more relaxed around people, they know, aren’t a threat to them. An animal’s ancestral instinct is what makes them perceive anything, and everything is a threat until proven. Otherwise, dogs follow their instincts too. They need to be able to ascertain that there is no threat around them before they can relax in your presence. They feel like there’s nothing, that’s a threat to them and they’ll feel calm.

10.  Your dog allows you to examine it.

If your dog is constantly licking its paws there’s a chance, the paw is inflamed, licking releases, endorphins or happy hormones. Your dog’s, excessive licking, is a sign that it’s in pain and is trying to find a way to relieve the pain. Now when an animal is in pain, the last thing they’d want is to allow someone to inspect the exact area where they feel the pain. However, if your dog allows you to examine it in this case, it’s in pain. It shows that it trusts you and knows that you won’t harm it in any way.

In other cases, your dog might come to you itself whenever it’s in pain or distress because they trust you enough to know that they can come to you and you’ll find a way to relieve them of that pain in your dog. You’ve probably found a friend for life, they’re, loyal, lovable, and trustworthy companions, which is why you should try your best to be the same to them.
