9 Signs Your Dog Misses You While You’re Gone
5. They’re super-excited when you come back to home
Does your dog get a major case of the zoomies when you walk through the door? They’re so happy to see you, it comes out in a burst of energy. Time for a post-separation play sesh!
4. They smile when they see your face
Dogs respond to your facial expressions and make quite a few expressions of their own. A dog greeting you with raised eyebrows, an open mouth, and soft eyes are showing you how happy they are that you’re home!
3. They lean against you as soon as you get through the door
Oh yeah, the lean. Dogs may lean against their people to get attention or seek comfort. Whatever their reason, the lean shows that they like to be close to you. A dog that comes in for the lean after you get home is saying, “I’m so glad you’re back.”
2. They follow you around the house
Does your dog turn into your shadow after you get home from work? Now that you’re home, they don’t want to let you out of their sight.
1. They make a mess (or two, or three)
Real talk: some dogs really don’t like to be left alone, and they show it by getting into trouble. Perhaps they’re just being opportunistic; my dog Radar always goes for the cat bowl when I leave! And certainly, a romp through the trash can be fun. But mess-making can also be a sign of anxiety. It’s a sign that they feel distressed by your absence.
Most dogs can be left alone for at least part of the day. But if you’re concerned about your dog missing you while you’re gone, hire a dog walker or pet sitter to keep them company. And remember, it’s okay to miss each other once in a while; it shows how strong your bond is.
