What’s the daily psychology of dogs?

Although dogs can’t express their inner world with words, they also have different psychological characteristics. Next, Xiaobian will reveal to pet owners the daily psychological characteristics of pet dogs.

[nostalgia and attachment mentality]

When a person is far away from his native land and comes to an unfamiliar environment, he always has the idea of recalling the past and missing his relatives. In his mind, he always wants to go back and see his relatives. This psychological state of nostalgia for his native land is called nostalgia or return psychology by psychologists. Dogs have the same mentality, and the desire to return is stronger than people.

People often say that dogs have a strong ability to return home, which is the best manifestation of dog nostalgia and attachment. Dogs, especially adult dogs, come to a new unfamiliar environment after changing their owners. They are always depressed for a period of time. They treat their new owners with indifference and wariness. Sometimes they even take revenge and wait for the opportunity to escape and return to their homeland. The reason why dogs want to go home is that the owners are at home, and the dogs want to go back to the owners. The dogs want to maintain a simple environment under the care of the owners.

Because of this, the dog endured all kinds of hardships, went through all kinds of hardships, and returned alone from the distant unfamiliar land.

[Jealousy mentality]

The pet dog obeys the owner and is loyal to the owner, but the dog seems to have a special requirement for the owner, that is, to hope that the owner loves him. And when the owner is in the distribution of emotions, it often causes the dog to hate the pet, and even to fight for it. This kind of jealousy is the most obvious emotional expression in dog’s psychological activities. The two outward manifestations of this jealousy mentality are indifference to the master, depression and attack on the beloved.


Dogs are innocent, loyal and friendly in most people’s eyes, but for people who hate dogs, dogs are a villain who depends on their owners and commits crimes. This is the two sides of a dog that can be seen from the human eye. In fact, dogs do have two sides, similar to human beings, but also have the mentality of revenge.

Dogs tend to remember their targets maliciously in their brains based on their sense of smell, vision and hearing, and plan revenge at the right time. When dogs revenge, they are almost mad and mean to kill each other. In the dog-dog interaction, it also shows revenge induced by revenge, and the dog will take advantage of the opponent’s sickness and weakness to retaliate, and even bite angrily after the death of the opponent.

[Hierarchical Psychology]

Of all domesticated animals, dogs are the most suitable animals for living with people. Dogs can obey their owners, obey their commands, and establish a relationship of mutual understanding and love. Dogs’close cooperation behavior is determined by their hierarchical psychology. In the dog’s mind, the owner is his natural leader, and the owner’s home is his territory.

It is this hierarchical mentality that makes a dog obey his master’s orders and be loyal to his master. If the dog reverses its owner’s rank, the phenomenon of bullying and attacking the owner often occurs.
