Why Your Dog Stands Over You?

The way your dog stands over you can be an expression of love, protection, or hunger. It might also mean that they’re clingy and want attention from their owner!

5 reasons why your dog stands over you 

#1: To wake you up

“Come on, human! Rise and shine!”

“It’s time for something remember? And when you open your eyes in the morning sometimes — do they see a dog staring back at them?”

#2: Your dog wants to be near you

Your dog might be a velcro, meaning they want to stick with their humans at all times. Well for puppies it’s only natural that way since they often get scared as young dogs adjusting to new environments but adults can also act like this naturally too sometimes if you’re not careful about how much contact your pet has while still being social! Some breeds were made specifically because of how attached these types go—Pugs are one example among others where holding onto them becomes addictive feeder than anything else; even though those cute little fur balls aren’t exactly known huggers themselves (unless maybe they’re trying to hump you).

#3: To feel safe and comfortable

Knowing your dog’s body language can help you understand what they are feeling. For example, if he runs and looks for a hiding spot when scared then that could mean one of two things – either his fear has been triggered by something in the room (like another animal) which makes him feel unsafe), or it may just be an anxious mannerism because there’s nothing worth worrying about at this moment!

‘Safe-haven effect’

Could it be that dogs improve our well-being too? According to a recent study, the answer might just indeed be yes!

The research found out how much importance humans place on their pets and whether or not these same feelings were mutual between animal parents and children. It turned out there were two different outcomes: some families had closer relationships than others did with both parent animals AND child ones (aside from any siblings). What do you think will happen next in this passage??

#4: Your dog loves and trusts you

You’ll know if your dog is excited to see you by how they perch over you with intense tail-wagging and soft eyes. If it’s just a greeting kiss on the cheek, then that’ll be one thing but if there are more signs like jumping up into your arms or squeezing tightly while barking out “Oh wow! You’re back!” then maybe this person has missed their best friend too much?

#5: It’s playtime

The way your dog stands over you when they’re asking for attention or playtime might be because of loneliness and boredom. They want to bond with you even just for a few minutes!

3 tips on what to do if your dog stands over you

#1: Redirect your dog

This is a great way to train your dog if you want them not only to remember what they are doing but also to forget about it. To do this, all we need for our pets’ brains and bodies to be trained correctly from the beginning will reward good behaviors while ignoring bad ones! First thing’s first: prepare some treats by getting rid of any food items that might contain added flavors like salt or sugar; these can confuse their taste buds when eaten after being conditioned with one type of cuisine (eats everything).

#2: Control your affection

Too much of anything is usually bad. And you can tell whether your pup’s clinginess needs correction or not by how often it happens and what kind of problems come up as a result, like separation anxiety for example? If the latter sounds familiar then don’t worry – there are some steps we’ll go through together!

The first step would be increasing their distance from us while still providing plenty of treats so they know why it’s important; making sure to leave these special items around will help too. Secondly, we can start to phase out physical contact completely by having them sit or stay instead of jumping up, as this will give us more of a sense of authority (plus it’s just good manners).

The key here is to show your dog only enough affection that it earns them trust, not just love. You should be careful about how much physical contact you have with him because overdoing things might lead him into believing he’s loved when all we were doing was trying our best (to help).

#3: Reduce their stress

For some reason, my pup likes to eat grass. And when she does this (jumps) the only way I can calm her down is by giving her a treat and soothing voice so that’s what we do first before anything else! If your dog starts jumping because he/she feels anxious or scared then try figuring out why they’re acting like this; it could be something as simple as an outside noise such as another person walking past which will make him nervous enough not to want us going outside at all times just in case.
