1. He Looks You In The Eyes

It’s easy to take doggy cuddles for granted when your pup is hogging the blankets and taking up most of the bed He might kick you in his sleep or fart dangerously close to your face  but the fact he’s sleeping with you in the first place is a good sign you’ve earned his complete trust.

Dogs are the most vulnerable when they’re asleep. Wolves and wild dogs purposefully sleep in small, confined areas with pack members they trust to protect against predators. For your pampered pooch, curled up on your bed is the safest place to be.

Voluntary cuddling and snuggling is one of a dogs favorite ways to show people their love They know you wont hurt them while they sleep and if an unwanted visitor comes knocking he knows he d rather be near you than far away

2. He Comes To You For Cuddles

Your dog won’t look into the eyes of another dog, but you’re not another dog. You’re the person he trusts more than anyone else in the world. Animal behaviorist Alexandra Horowitz says in her book, “Inside a Dog,” a dog’s ability to look into a person’s eyes in a non-aggressive way was one of the first steps toward canine domestication. They somehow learned that humans like eye contact, and by looking into a person’s eyes, they establish a meaningful relationship.

If you and your dog can gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes, it’s a sign your dog trusts you and understands you. In human body language, eye contact can mean anything from, “I take you seriously” to “Will you go on a date with me?” There are several different messages your eyes can send another person, but generally, looking someone in the eye tells them you’re focused and paying attention.

In canine body language, however, eye contact tells a whole different story. A dog that looks another dog in the eye is most likely issuing a threat. It’s a sign of dominance, and to keep the peace, most dogs avoid locking eyes with their furry friends.

3. He’s Confident And Relaxed Around You

You can tell tons about how a dog feels supported by their visual communication.

Dogs that are scared or anxious pace back and forth, cower, put their tails between their legs, lip their licks, yawn once they aren’t tired, pant excessively, and pin their ears to their heads.

When utilized in the normal context, these actions suggest something’s bothering your dog. For one reason or another, they’re not as confident or as relaxed as they ought to be

On the opposite paw, animal behaviorist Victoria Stilwell says dogs that trust their people often display signs of confident and relaxed body posture. They keep their mouths slightly open, their eyes blink often their ears are during a forward position and their tails are either wagging or perky and loose. this sort of visual communication says your dog is confident by your side and isn’t worried about being scared or surprised.

Your dog trusts you to stay things in check.

You’ll notice your dog’s confident posture when you’re doing chores around the house out on a walk, and easily spending time together.
