How well do you know your dog will depend on some many factors. Some factors may include the duration that you have that pet, the bonding moments that you spent together, the way your pet responds to you, the way he will obey your command, the way he looks and smells you and the time you spent time together alone.
As we all know, dogs can’t say anything but bark. They cannot express what they really want, what they need from you and how they really feel. Here are some of the things that your dog will not tell you about.
1. I am in pain
Hurting is number one on the list that your pet will not complain about. She may walk limply, eat differently, or will show signs of discomfort by shaking his head. But you will not see them cry in pain, you won’t hear them wailing like humans do. Some signs of a dog in pain are slow motion movements, taking up and down the stairs slowly, hesitation to jump and having a hard time getting up. These signs may not just because he gets older but because your dog feels pain.
2. I am anxious
When aggression is present in your dog, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are domineering, mad, or just acting up to get some attention. It is a sign that your dog is afraid. If they are persistently scared, ask help from professionals.
3. I don’t like the other pet
Pets are naturally jealous and territorial. Once they feel threatened by the presence of other pets, they will feel envious. You can try to show them that you treat them fairly by giving them ample time and attention. Give them food with the same content and amount and bring them toys at the same time. You can also go for a walk together to tighten the bond.
4. I am already fat
Most dog owners won’t admit that their pets are overweight unless it came right from the veterinarian. Obesity is often overlooked. Your pet may not want to eat a lesser amount of food but definitely they don’t want to carry the excess fats that they have on.
5. I need to exercise more often
In addition to the previous topic, exercise cannot only helps in reducing excess weight but this can also make your pet happier. An exercised dog is a happier dog.
6. I am not feeling well
Your pets are a master in hiding their true health condition unless you go to your vet for a regular check up. You can check for symptoms if you look and observe closer. Once you notice something different, visit your vet right away.
7. I need to get around and mingle
Pets are basically sociable – they like being with humans and other dogs. Not allowing your pet to interact with others may lead them to be fearful.
8. I need to be insured
Pet insurance is not only beneficial for the pet but for the dog owner too. Thinking of a large amount of pet bills may drain you but if your pet is insured, then you can forget the hassle of all the expenses.
