After his toy falls on the floor, he flails back like a toddler and howls the blues like his entire day was ruined.

Why is my dog being so dramatic?
I come home from a long day of work, and my dog greets me at the door with tail wagging and ears perked. But as I take off my jacket, he starts to howl. And when I sit down on the couch, he jumps into my lap and licks my face incessantly. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the enthusiasm, but sometimes I can’t help but wonder: why is my dog being so dramatic?
Possibly, it’s because he knows that I’ve had a long day and he wants to make me feel better. Or maybe he’s just really happy to see me. Whatever the reason, I’m glad to have such a loving and supportive dog in my life. Even if he does tend to be a little over-the-top sometimes.
Have you ever wondered why your dog always seems to be so drama? It’s not just in their nature, though that plays a role. There are a number of reasons that can contribute to a dog’s theatrical behavior. First, they may be trying to get attention. If you’ve been ignoring your dog or spending more time with other people, they may act out in an attempt to get your attention. Secondly, dogs are very social creatures, and they crave interaction. If they feel like they’re being left out or excluded, they may start to act up in order to get involved. Finally, dogs are highly emotive creatures, and they tend to mirror our own emotions. So if you’re feeling dramatic, chances are your dog will pick up on that and reflect it back to you!
