Crush, also called a crush, is a generic term for emotional or romantic feelings of platonic or romantic love, usually felt during early childhood and adolescence, usually between a dog and his owner, or experienced by a dog and a person they feel a strong relationship with. It’s named after the close resemblance to the adult crush that can be felt by an adult dog. In humans, the crush is usually felt as early as the first year of school, although it can be experienced much earlier. A dog’s crush typically develops in the same way – as in humans, because the dog experiences an affection he can only express with his owner or in specific, hand-held, social situations. The feeling may vary from mild to extreme, depending on the owner and the intensity of the dog’s relationship with them. Some dogs develop crushes later in life, while others do not.
While crushes are common in puppies, they tend to be less common among older dogs, and more prevalent in younger ones. A puppy might feel a crush on a sibling or friend, while an older dog might feel a crush on their master. Canine crush is just that – a pure expression of the canine owners’ mutual love. However, while crushes in dogs and people are often related to feelings of friendship or endearment, crushes in canines can also arise out of negative experiences.
There are many theories about why a dog might start developing a crush on a particular person, but one of the most common reasons is due to hormonal imbalances caused by pregnancy, or thyroid issues. Hormonal imbalances cause a dog to behave like he or she is ready to mate and can lead to a crush on another person. If a female dog is hyperactive and overexcites when she is around a potential mate, this may cause her to develop feelings for the person. Other potential causes of this are separation anxiety, boredom, and feels threatened by another dog.
Some potential romantic encounters can even turn into crushes, especially if the experiences are positive and enjoyable. However, even crushes can be problematic because they can potentially distract from your dog’s ability to maintain a harmonious relationship with you. If you feel that your dog has developed a crush on a member of your household member, it can be very difficult to get your pooch to focus on other activities that you wish to reinforce his or her good behavior.
While it’s important to recognize the crush as a sign that something is going on within your dog’s mind, it can be helpful to take a step back and ask yourself some questions. Are you the type who tends to take things lightly? Have you ever wondered if another person could be dangerous? Have you ever worried that crush you thought was cute could actually be threatening? While it’s important to think about what these feelings mean for your dog, it can also be helpful to remind yourself that just because a crush happens, doesn’t mean that he or she really likes you! In other words, don’t give in to those crush feelings!
The important thing is not to react to the crush too harshly. Rather, take a deep breath and consider the situation before reacting, or leaving the kennel in anger. After all, crushes are very common among dogs and they usually don’t mean that your dog isn’t lovable or attractive! Just remember that the crush isn’t always harmful and that kederian reflexes are perfectly normal!
