Dogs are known to be great companions for human beings. You might think that you know your furry best friend, but sometimes we really are speaking different languages. Some of the most common behaviors of dogs may not actually mean what you think they do. This is what these behaviors actually signify.
Standing On Their Hind Legs
Usually when a dog stands on its hind legs, it is showing affection. It can also indicate to other dogs nearby that the dog is ready for playing, especially if the rest of their behavior is not aggressive.
While it is an annoying habit for us, often when dogs, especially puppies, begin chewing on furniture it means they are teething. Older dogs that start chew on sofas may be signaling that they need more exercise and that they are bored. Take them for a walk or run and tire them out!
