Dogs like to follow their humans everywhere. It may start out as cute, but it tends to get old pretty fast. Honestly, it gets a little weird when they start watching you go to the bathroom.

From going to the bathroom with you, and their other strange behaviors, most of the things dogs do have some sort of meaning and what they're actually trying to tell you is amazing.

If you ever come home to your stuff being ruined, this is a warning sign. Your dog is either extremely bored, or they're suffering from separation anxiety. Both of these issues need to be addressed. They can cause your dog some serious stress. Bring your pup to a behavior specialist to work on his anxiety or just give him some extra cuddles. If they're bored, increase their walks and play time. Unfortunately, none of these options will keep them from following you to the bathroom.

It can be a heartbreaking sign to see your dog hunch over frequently. If a dog is hunching over, they're making themselves look smaller because they're scared. If there is no threat around and your dog is hunching over, this can be worse. Dogs that do this typically have been abused in the past. If you adopted a dog from a rescue and they're doing this, be gentle with them. If you see your dog raise their paw, get out of the way.

Dog typically raise their arms when they're stalking. If they have their shoulders crouched down and their paw is up, it's time to hunt! You should just get out of the way when this happens. You can get knocked down by a dog running at full speed. If it's a chihuahua, just move to be nice. What's even more gross is when they try to speak to you through their kill.

Don't be grossed out if you find a dead bird or rat in your bed. Well, it is gross, but try to understand. This is a gift from your dog! If they're not the type of dog to kill things, they might just bring you a toy. Dogs give things to their owners that they might want or need. It's their way to show you their appreciation. But if it's poop they're bringing, then you definitely have a problem!
