Have You Ever Wondered Why Your Dog Stares?

Dogs stare for a variety of reasons. I was always taught by my folks to never stare at a dog as that is a sign of aggression, and will lead a dog to pursue you, and not in a good way. While this is partially true, especially for a dog that is not a pet, your dog is usually staring at you for the following reasons:

  • They think they’re going to get a “treat.” 
  • They might want to play fetch.
  • Or, go for a car ride.
  • They might be yearning for affection; i.e., petting, belly rub, etc.

While sometimes it can be intimidating when your dog stares, if you’re a loving pet owner who dotes on their pet, then your pet staring is obviously a good thing. On the other hand, it is noted that your dog staring is directly mutual and done out of respect; not a form of aggression or anger.

Does your dog stare at you? If so, does it bother or please you? Let us know!
