10 Signs Your Dog Is Mad At You

Well, according to science, the answer is actually yes! Depending on the behaviors we exhibit when we’re mad, dogs will recognize them and react differently. So just make sure you don’t stay mad for too long, and make sure your dog understands not to misbehave again!Dogs have been around humans for a really long time. As a result, they’ve learned to read our facial expressions, body language, and voices in a way that allows them to at least recognize what we’re feeling. This includes anger. Your dog will react differently towards you when you’re happy vs. when you’re upset, especially when it’s with them! Some of the signs you may notice/your dog may exhibit are listed below:
Puppy-dog eyes: they know we love them because we give them treats when they make that face! Doggos will give us the look they know melts our hearts in the hope of making us less mad.
Avoiding eye contact: oftentimes when we’re mad at our dogs, we’re yelling at them. They know we’re the alpha – we’re bigger than them, louder than them, and we eat whenever we want! So when we’re hanging over them and using our loud voice, they’re going to exhibit submissive behavior, like avoiding eye contact, tails tucked between their legs, ears flat against their head, or maybe even rolling over on their bellies. 
Avoiding looking at what they did: similarly they may avoid looking at the mess they made! We’ve all seen videos of those “bad dogs” who got into treats they weren’t supposed to that seems like they’re pretending what they did didn’t happen. This is another submissive type of behavior; your pet thinks that if you don’t see what they did, then you’ll stop being mad and start giving them some love again! Dogs have evolved with humans. In fact, there is proof that we’ve been living with dogs for over 10,000 years! That means that we humans domesticated dogs a long timAnother study of 11 dogs showed similar results. “A group of researchers trained a group of 11 dogs to differentiate between angry and happy human faces.” When they were shown part of a human’s face in various emotional states, and dogs that recognized happy faces were given treats. 
They were very quickly able to recognize and respond to that training/command, meaning that they were able to tell the difference between various emotions. “The researchers are confident that based on their results, and results of other, less conclusive attempts, some dogs are able to differentiate between human expressions.e ago, and as a result, they’ve been living with us and have learned a lot. Part of this is learning how to read our facial expressions.
