Everyone gives their dogs belly rubs. But did you know that you could be creating a great deal of stress and eventually anxiety by continuing to pet your dogs belly.
All dogs are different and some just simply tolerate or don’t enjoy those rubs that you love giving.
If your dog's body is loose and he has softer eyes and does the wiggle he probably enjoys your belly rubs.
If your dog's body starts to tense up, it looks away from you, has big and wide eyes, licks its lips then you need to stop!
As owners, we need to be aware of what our dogs are communicating to us at all times to ensure we take proper action so that our relationship can flourish.
