Dogs are considered babies even when they are fully grown up. It makes dog parents proud to witness their healthy growth and show their different sides. Most dogs are playful, energetic, and social, while others are sweet, gentle, and often timid. They slowly show those personalities as they grow up, like living with another human. You know their quirks, favorite things, and what scares them the most. Having dogs around the house is an experience that is both informative and life-changing.
Living with a dog at home can make you realize that they really feel and express emotions. Dogs show their appreciation and love by licking your face, or you might notice that when they see you, they wag their tail. They also often express excitement by tackling their favorite human.
Dogs will pounce on you, especially the large ones. Rough play may look dangerous, but that is their natural reaction when seeing someone they love. It was cute when they were puppies, but dogs can easily pounce on you with a fast growth spurt. Tackling might look dangerous, but it’s a form of friendly greeting — an “I miss you” or “Welcome home” from your big dog.
