When you see a dog or puppy that has his mouth wide open and his eyes are sparkling with joy, you know that is your dog’s laugh. It’s all you can do to keep from laughing yourself. And I don’t just mean at the moment when you see the smile; there is the warmth of the laughter that has been building up inside of him for quite some time.
The word “laughing” has been applied to dogs for many reasons. It can mean the dog is happy, it can mean that he’s feeling good, it can mean that he wants to let you know. Whatever the reason, the dog is in excellent company if he’s laughing. And we love him for it.
Dogs tend to be more animated than cats, which has several benefits, not the least of which is that they often make us laugh. Cats tend to avoid eye contact and will even be blushing when we try to find out what’s up, but dogs will go a little mad if we ignore them and tell them to get off the couch.
Dogs are funny. And they will probably be more animated if you try to physically stop them from laughing. However, your efforts at a physical correction may be in vain, as the dog will continue to laugh anyway.
To check out a dog that’s having a great time, make sure that you get a straight-on look at his face. If you have to squint to see what he’s doing, he’s either trying to hide something or to escape your eye contact. While most dogs will make eye contact, they’ll typically pretend to scratch themselves or move their ears, but don’t count on this.
Tips To Snuggle With New Dogs
Greeting a new dog is a challenge, to say the least. The dog may appear well-behaved and friendly. Then he may go running off, or he may greet you with a little yelp. The only way to catch a dog off guard is to be ready for everything. You may be nervous but your new dog will be equally nervous.
Greeting a new dog needs to be an enjoyable experience. Here are some hints on how to greet a new dog:
As the dog runs up to you, start with a small greeting. Say something like, “Hello!” A little faster will probably mean he gets confused and runs off or whines in your face. Instead, a hello should be followed by a “thank you” and “good luck.”
Dogs are very likely to stand still or run for your attention. This is the ideal way to start a new relationship with your dog. Do not, however, sit in front of your dog unless he wants to sit.
A Poodle’s personality is quite distinctive and the same applies to a Poodle. If you’re not a patient person and have trouble with patience, consider buying your Poodle a friend that is, preferably a puppy that has been trained to wait while you greet the dog.
Hug your dog to show him that you care. Do not squirm away from him to avoid it. You can also start by gently touching him on the head and rubbing his neck. That’ll allow you to put your arm around him and take him in close.
