Reasons why your dog is staring at you like a little psycho

Does your dog stare at you? A lot? Is the staring freaking you out a little bit? It might be creepy, but rest assured your dog is not plotting your murder.

There are several good reasons as to why they just love to stare at you, and we’re going to name just a few.

They love you!

New research shows that mutual gazing between us and our pets releases the same hormonal response present during mother and infant bonding in humans. If you discover your dog looking at you with longing eyes and no apparent reason, it just might be a sign of affection.

They might be a little confused

A soft stare, tilted head and pricked ears can only mean one thing! Your dog is confused. It is not sure what’s going on and is waiting for clarification from you.

They really, really want your food

Dogs love to try human food! So if you’re sitting at the table having dinner or snacking in front of the TV and your dog is staring you down, it’s probably because they want a bite of what you’re having.
