If you have a furry family member at home, then you should already know how loving they can be. But did you know that dogs are actually extremely emotional creatures? Just like humans, dogs can miss the people that they're closest to, and also like humans, they'll sometimes act out from frustration and sadness. If you're not sure if your dog misses you when you're gone, look for these sure signs of a lonely pup.
It's obvious that dogs are extremely vocal animals, especially when the mailman is trying to do his job.
Even though they can be pretty annoying at times, dogs are vocal because they have something that they need to say. If your dog whines, howls, or barks when you get ready to leave the house, then they're blatantly telling you that they don't want you to leave them alone all day.

Keep in mind, howling every time you leave isn't the only way that a dog shows that you're missed.
If your dog straight up ignores you every time you get ready to leave, then there's a good chance that they're not happy with you. But don't worry, they'll be ready to show you some love as soon as you walk back in through the door.

Just like humans, dogs tend to feel sad when they're away from the people they love.
More often than not, a dog that misses their owner while they're away won't even try to enjoy their alone time. Instead, they'll sit by the door or window staring out until their owner arrives back home to give them the attention that they're in desperate need of.
There's no denying that coming home to an excited dog can be a bit overwhelming after a long day at work.
If your furry friend can't stop jumping on you or licking you after you get home, remember, it may be annoying, but they're doing it for a reason. Dogs love the attention that they get from their favorite human, which is why they can't help but get excited every time they see you!
Feeling like you're being followed around can be quite unsettling, but dogs simply can't help it.
Because of how social dogs are they miss their owners every time they're alone. So, when you get home and your dog won't let you go to the bathroom by yourself, you can feel better knowing that they just want to be around you all of the time!
