People have been reading emotions in their dogs for ages. Wagging tails tell us that our dogs are open for interaction, and their persuasive looks mean that they want attention or some treats. The way dogs develop human-like emotions and behavior has always been a subject of scientific research. Studies have shown that dogs have all the same brain structures that produce emotions in humans, and there are a number of ways in which our dogs show us their love.

One of the ways in which dogs say “I love you” is staring directly into your eyes. Scientists have found out that by gazing into our eyes dogs develop strong emotional bonds with humans, just like people do when looking into each other’s eyes. This human-like mode of communication was probably acquired by dogs during domestication, increasing the oxytocin (the social hormone) level in both dogs and their owners.
