12 Things Your Dog Does When He’s Trying To Tell You Something

Not so with pet owners. So until someone finally invents a dog-to-human translator, you're going to have to learn to read your dog's body language. With that in mind, here are 12 common behaviors dogs will show their owners and what they could mean.

3. Hunching over and making himself look small.


This means that the dog is scared. If you meet a dog who does this without any apparent source of fear, there’s a good chance he’s been abused.

4. Bringing things to you.


You might think that he wants to play fetch, especially if he’s bringing you a toy. What your dog may be doing instead is giving you a gift. It’s apparently a leftover of the dog’s hunting instincts, only he’s bringing you things he thinks you’ll like or need instead of dead prey.
