10 Signs Your Dog Is Truly Happy


Our canines make our lives happy and many pet keepers always try their best to appreciate them. They enlighten us during our bad days and constantly show us affection making us smile and laugh more compared to when we did not keep them. It is a natural thing for every pet keeper to ensure that they offer the best environment for their dogs.

It is likely that one knows their dog’s feelings and can interpret them. In case one is uncertain about how their dog feels, these 10 signs will give you an idea if your dog is excited and see if it gives you memories of a certain exceptional pup!

  1. Soft Glare

Dogs love to share a cordial glare with the people they trust and this is usually a sign that they are satisfied. However, when they share a stare with a stranger, some dogs feel unprotected especially if they are anxious to start with. Whether they are keeping eye contact with you or their gazing is soft as you caress their fur (maybe their eyes are even shutting!), this implies that your canine can fully feel at home around you – and who is not excited when their dogs are feeling “zen”?

  1. Laidback mouth and ears

a dog with a laid back mouth – loosely closed, not breathing hard – is usually composed and this sign is mostly followed by a soft glare. Their mouth may be a little open during moderate breathing and resemble like they are smiling at you. However, one should not confuse this with an anxious or threatening “smile” that twists the lips.

One can also look at the location of the ears. An anxious dog has their ears standing up and alert, or collapsed on the head followed by worrying signs like lip-licking and tail constriction. On the other hand, a relaxed dog has its ears positioned in their normal position. To add on this, some canines put their ears back when they are excited to see someone they love coming to them, and in this scenario, it is usually followed by an affectionate glare and wiggling tail.

  1. Wiggling Tail

Everybody knows that canines wiggle their tails to depict their feelings. What some do not understand, after all, is that some kinds of wiggling can express anxiety or vigilance. When your canine’s rear side is in its normal position, he is most probably relaxed. The huge wiggles you see when you get back home from work are beyond any doubt that your dog is happy.

Below are the various kinds of tail wiggles:

  • A small wiggle with each sway of only small extent, occasionally seen as a way of greeting, “Hello there,” or an optimistic way to say “I am here”
  • A wide wiggle is compassionate, “I am not provoking or intimidating you.” It could also mean: “I’m contented.” This is the nearest to the most common notion of the high-spirited wiggle, especially if the tail looks like it is moving the hips with it.
  • A lazy wiggle with the tail midway raised is less friendly than most other tail characteristics. In general, slow wiggles with the tail neither in an appropriate superior (high) nor a complying (low) position are insecure gestures.
  • Very small, high-speed wagging that shows the tail vibrations are signals that the canine is getting ready for a run or a fight. If the tail is positioned high while vibrating, there are high chances that there is an aggressive danger. 
  1. Good food cravings

Changes in desire for food in most cases signify health issues, anxiety or uneasiness. Canines with tend to have good food cravings are an affirmative signal that they are well than the ones that stop eating. Dogs could be choosy at times, but if they are excited to eat a bowl of their beloved food or an exclusive treat from you, regard it as a good thing!

  1. Happy Reactions

If your friend is happy to see you all the time you walk through the door, make an advance for a pet, or give them a smooch first thing in the morning, without a doubt this makes them so happy to be with you. To add on this, dogs who wiggle their tails when walking, anxiously await their food, or cannot hold back their joy on a car ride are excited!

  1. Non-Damaging

When dogs start to eat our shoes, furniture and everything they might find on their way, it is a common signal that they are nervous, bored, have a lot of energy of a combination of the three.

Even though canines are very excited when they are with their owners, they can become upset when they are not near them. Segregation anxiety is a hard problem that many pet keepers face in general because they want their canine to be excited, even when they are not around. Without a doubt, a non-destructive canine is one that is composed and excited while you are away.

  1. Likes Being Active

When our dogs are anxious about playing games or going out, whether it be going for a walk, a game of fetch or going swimming, this is a great sign that they are feeling full of energy and in good condition. Our pooches are extraordinarily easy to amuse; any kind of enjoyable activity makes them more excited than a kid in Disney World.

  1. Seeks attention from loved ones

Canines are social beings, it is natural for them to want affection and attention from people – unless they lose trust in someone. All canines have different charisma, an excited dog will never fail to show love to pets they receive from people they cherish, be it some few family members or any new “buddy” they meet!

  1. Falls asleep well

Humans are not the only creatures with specific sleeping behavior! Canines that do not find sleep could be traumatized, nervous, uncomfortable or sick, for example, they have a mental disorder. If your dog is satisfied and relaxed when it is sleeping time, he will be able to calmly doze off into doggy dreamland and there is nothing better than this.

  1. Is full of good health

Nobody enjoys feeling unhealthy, canines too. Many dogs with health concerns grow well comfortably than those with exceptional needs to older dogs with rigid joints. The main thing is for the dogs to feel energetic enough to do their preferred things.

Modern medicine has been able to sort out many health issues with remedies, natural additives, good dog feed as well as exercise. If your dog’s health condition is well-taken care off and does not fall sick more often, then she is excited.

Just like humans, canines are not always excited all the time, however, they are always making an effort to bring out the best in them. If your dog shows one or more of these
“excitement signs” one is quite sure they have a satisfied and excited canine.
