Cuddling with you after a meal.
In his book, How Dogs Love Us, Gregory Berns, if your dog hugs you after eating, it’s a strong sign that he really loves you.
Most dog lovers (or even people who don’t like dogs) know that puppies are food-motivated. But according to Berns, once a dog eats all of its food, its next action can mean what’s most important to it besides eating.
Sometimes your dog may have to do his “business” right after a meal, but watch how he reacts in the morning and evening. If he cuddles up with you after one of those meals, then there’s a definite love. for the pups on his side.
