7 Truths Only Dog Owners Understand

Ohhhh, pups. If you’re a dog lover, you know that these animals steal our hearts on a daily basis. But, owning a dog can lead us down roads we’d never imagined–both good and not so good. Here are some truths about life with dogs that you’ll certainly relate to!

#1 They’ve Got Their Favorite Spots.

You know you bought them the fanciest-of-fancy dog beds. But, when it comes to getting comfy, it’s always the last place you’d like them to lay!

Whose doggo finds the perfect spot? Taking in what’s going on inside your home, all while having access to what’s going on outside the windows.

#2 Paws, Paws, So Many Paws.

From scratching at screens–don’t you just remove them?!?–to coming in after the rain, paws can make a mess! But, as messy as they can be, they’re so darn cute.

#3 Dogs Are Man’s Best Friend.

No one loves you like your dog loves you. They wait patiently all day just to hear the garage door open so they can run to meet you at the door.

Make sure they’re comfy with customized blinds, shades or shutters! From maintaining comfortable temperatures, to giving them the ideal view (or closing the shades so they don’t go bizerk!)

Not only your best friend, they often love your kids like they’d love their own. And, don’t the precious moments of them together just melt your heart?

#5 Personality Quirks Are Not Just for Humans.

Dog owners don’t need to be told, but every dog has its very own personality. Moods, habits and behaviors are all based on your dog’s unique preferences.

So, whether your dog goes crazy when the doorbell rings on the TV, or they have to dance in circles before getting comfy in their favorite spot, their personalities shine through!

#6 Dogs Lack Self Awareness.

Along with personality traits, they also lack self awareness! Maybe your dog is an 85 pound lab that still thinks he can fit on your lap.

Or, do you have the loving dog with the fierce bark that scares passing children? Whatever their downfalls, they certainly make up for in love and affection.
