If you’re a Dog owner, you’ve been there. That awkward stare your dog gives you while doing it’s business.
So why do they do it? Well According to a study in Hormones and Behavior in 2009, the meaning of sustained eye contact between humans and their dogs in general is all about instincts! Dogs are hyper aware of their surroundings, so it makes sense that during their most vulnerable times they would look to you their BFF to warn them of danger.
So basically your dog will awkwardly stare at you while going to the bathroom because it trusts you and knows you have its back!
