Most dog breeds around the world are affectionate towards their owners and members of their human families. Canines are like people in that they also need human attention and companionship.
French Bulldogs are family dogs that love to spend time with their loved ones. They are very friendly and love to show affection to their owners and members of their human family through certain actions and body language.
Many dog owners may confuse certain actions with showing affection, and it may not be what your dog is trying to express. They might also think that they are trying to demand or tell you something, but they are really trying to give you love.
That is why it is important to know the most common ways that a French Bulldog uses to show love to people:
French Bulldogs Will Wag Their Tails
A wagging tail is maybe one of the most ubiquitous markers of joy and love among canines. Because the small tails are somewhat more subtle in French Bulldogs, they will still make this gesture in their own unique way.
The tail of an amorous French Bulldog will shake or wiggle when they greet you, unlike the tails of other breeds, which generally wag from side to side.
If they’re particularly eager to see you, their entire lower body can get involved, causing their small hips to swing so much that they can’t keep balanced.
French Bulldogs Will Kiss You on Your Face
French Bulldogs will willingly give you large, sloppy kisses as a way of expressing their love for you. While you may wish to educate your canine out of this habit, particularly if they have a tendency to jump up and kiss (lick) your mouth, it is still a clear sign that they adore and appreciate you.
If your dog does this frequently, you will want to start brushing its teeth. After all, while your French Bulldog adoration is endearing, their breath isn’t.
French Bulldogs Will Jump on You
Due to their eagerness, French Bulldogs will jump on you as a welcome gesture. It’s usually seen as an impulse in French Bulldog pups. Because people are taller than them, they attempt to leap to reach their faces in order to get closer and welcome them warmly.
Another time they’ll jump is when you’re bringing them food. French Bulldogs are often hungry, and when they are fed, they are unable to contain their joy and jump back on their owners out of affection.
French Bulldogs Will Hug You and Lean on You
A dog may lean on you for a variety of reasons, all of which demonstrate confidence and devotion. Your French Bulldog may rely on you since they are apprehensive about meeting a new person or being in a new place, but it is also because they trust and respect you and perceive you as someone who might safeguard and soothe them.
Furthermore, your French Bulldog may lean on you since they desire you to do anything for them or simply because they need to be near you. Whatever the cause, it’s a great gesture of affection and love from your French Bulldog, and it indicates that they consider you to be a safe person.
French Bulldogs Will Roll Over
Rolling over for a good tummy rub is another method your French Bulldog uses to show you affection and devotion.
That is more likely to happen if you’ve already shown them affection. Still, this display of submission is a great compliment in either case because it implies these dogs respect you enough to disclose their most sensitive areas.
French Bulldogs Will Bring You Their Favourite Toys
If your French Bulldog is always giving you toys, this is another manner they are expressing their unconditional love for you.
This is their way of recognizing you as the alpha, and by giving you some of their favourite toys, they are not only demonstrating their confidence in you to look after their favourite items, but they are also attempting to start sharing these toys with you in the hopes that you will enjoy them more than they do.
French Bulldogs Will Sleep with You
Some people choose to train their pets to sleep or rest on the floor or in a different room, but if your French Bulldog is attempting to join you in bed or wants to sleep in your bedroom, this is yet another strong indication that they adore you.
Because French Bulldogs are very clinging dogs, it’s essential not to let this behaviour go out of hand if it’s giving you problems, but it’s still a heart-warming indicator of their devotion and love for you.
If your French Bulldog always does everything possible to stay and sleep next to you, it only indicates that it trusts you too much and that it not only sees you as a dear person who will protect it but also considers you as part of its family.
