Morty the Australian Shepherd wants to spend time with his owner, but he’s always on his phone.
Do dogs hate when you are on your phone?
Have you ever been in the middle of a conversation with someone when they pull out their phone and start scrolling through social media or checking their email? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to feel like you are being ignored in favor of a screen. But have you ever wondered how your dog feels when you do the same thing?
Dogs are highly social animals, and they love nothing more than spending time with their favorite people. When you are on your phone, you are effectively shutting your dog out of your attention and signaling that you are not available to interact with them. This can be very confusing and frustrating for dogs, who may start to wonder why they are being ignored. In some cases, dogs may even become anxious or stressed when they see their owner on their phone.
So next time you reach for your phone while your dog is around, take a moment to think about how they might be feeling. You may just find that it’s better to put the phone away and give your furry friend the attention they deserve.
