Decoding Your Dog’s Love Language: What Their Greetings Really Mean

Have you ever wondered why your dog greets you in different ways when you come home? 

Well, just like people, dogs have their own ways of showing love. These greetings not only express affection but also tell us a lot about how they’re feeling. Let’s explore these 6 special ways your dog communicates love and what it reveals about their emotions.

#1 Happy Hopper: Excited and Racing Hearts!
