    Why Do Dogs Put Their Paws On You?

    My dog would put his paw on my chest or on my arm, what does it mean?

    Affection I believe. My cats do the same thing, in fact when I cradle my youngest one, he literally tries to pull my face down so he can slobber all over it while purring like a freaking engine.

    For my dog it is:
    wants to get under the covers or
    wants attention, when I give him attention he then does the
    "I need to go out" next to the door routine or acts goofy which means to me: "I want to go for a walk"

    When they just put their paw on you it's like holding hands with your spouse or significant other. If they are kind of pawing at you they usually want something--usually attention (or a snack).

    Your pet is loving you. Your pet is being affectionate to you. Your pet is talking to you....
