Why do Dobermans stare?

You are sitting watching television, but your dog only has eyes for you. You are cooking dinner and the dog is laser focused on your face. You go to the bathroom and… you get the idea. If there’s one thing almost all dogs do well, it’s stare at their owners. And he looks. And he looks.

But why do they do it? There are four main reasons: attention, confusion, desire, and direction.

Lean on your legs randomly

This will happen in the worst case, as if you were running in the kitchen and preparing dinner. But if he sits right behind your legs and presses on them, that’s a sign that he loves you. Resist the urge to kick him or send him running immediately. After all, he’s just telling you how much he cares about you. Just don’t trip!

It’s 2 am. m. and you’re fast asleep in your bed with your doberman. He’s already piled you to the edge of your species-sized mattress, leaving you barely inches to sleep. But then, when you’re totally asleep and comfortable, he gets up, rolls over a turn or two, and quickly drops all of his weight onto your side. He feels like a fighter has punched your body.

It is normal for dogs to look

In many cases, the look is the normal behavior of the dog, which is used to express some kind of emotion, desire or need. If there’s one thing almost all dogs do well, it’s stare at their owners. When a dog searches for direction, it is often because he is in the process of training or doing some other activity and wants to know what to do next. Another important way to understand what the dog’s gaze means is to look at the context of the situation.

When you’re about to swallow a nice-smelling meal, your dog is probably looking at you. Whether there’s a real threat or not, they may stare at you to make sure you’re okay or figure out what the problem is. If your dog is frightened, he may look into his ears, his eyes widen, and he may breathe more frequently than usual.

What happens when you stare at a dog

Dogs are likely to move away from a threat. If they catch someone watching them, they will try to tune out the person watching them. Some dogs:

  • Avert their gaze from a person who is staring at them
  • Slowly slink away
  • Yawn
  • Raise one front leg

  • Shake it off (it looks like it’s shaking the water off the coat
