What is your pup trying to tell you? Let’s keep looking at this.
It’s true that many out there think that all dogs like to be given baths. Yet, there’s not much to this (even I was shocked when reading this the 1st time). The average pooch is not into getting bathed. When your pup goes ‘crazy’ running around post-bath, that’s a pretty good sign they didn’t enjoy it.
Truth is, dogs dislike staying wet, so running like heck is one way to get themselves dry quicker. When you see Rover boosting its energy, this could help explain it. Then there’s the issue regarding what it means to us when they stand up in twos.
Sure, getting up on its hind legs could let us know the dog is seeking to show its care towards the caregiver. Like a human, which similarly wants to hug you. But once you see this being done to other dogs, it’s their way to let them know they’re game. Literally.
Ready to horse dog-around. as long as they aren’t showing aggressiveness, it’s just their signaling way they’re ready to play. But there’s nothing to play about when it comes to chewing on house essentials. When you’re not dealing with a puppy in this situation, is to signal a negative but easily remedied issue.
This is to let you know their particular physical level needs aren’t being met. So just getting your mutt moving, out on a walk, or allowing them to exercise in alternative ways, is what the proverbial doctor ordered.
Yes, when a pup starts getting their teeth out, they’ll look around on things to chew on. Dog behaviorists also remind us that canines see us as another dog. The one they’re under. So whatever you leave at teeth-reach, is seen by them as a ‘present’ to them.
