If your dog jumps on you when you get home, it’s not because he missed you

We always say that the best thing when we go home is to find our dog who comes to say hello jumps on us, starts running around, and shows how much he loves us and how much he missed us. Instagram is full of scenes like this, so cute that it gives ideas to people who don’t have pets.

What if that wasn’t really what’s going on? What if, all this time, we had only believed in something that didn’t really happen, and misinterpreted what we were seeing?

Sorry for this revelation, but if your dog greets you so much when you get home, it’s not because he missed you. In fact, it passes you a soap because you went out leaving it at home.

This is what one dog trainer explained to Business Insider, arguing that it happens, from time to time, that these jumps are jumps of joy, but that as a general rule, unfortunately, dogs resent their masters for not having taken them out.

Just as it is easy to misinterpret the way a dog moves its tail and believe that it is expressing joy when it is about to attack or to believe that it tilts its head to the side because it does not understand what it is being told while it is trying to understand the meaning of our words, it is easy to misinterpret the jumps of our four-legged friends.

So you know what you have to do the next time you get home and your dog jumps on you. Don’t say to him: “Hey, I missed you too much too!”, “I love you too!”, “Oh, what a beautiful dog!” Start by asking for forgiveness, and follow up on what you usually tell him. He will be grateful.
