This can have two very opposite meanings and establishing the difference between these two can help your dog be their best confident self! If your dog is a big old center of attention and loves human contact, they may often roll over for a belly rub. In this case, their head is usually relaxed on the floor, their limbs are floppy and they’re stretching out for maximum scratches. However, if you’re greeted by a dog doing a similar action, but their head is held off the ground to look at you, their body is slightly more ridged and their a little more curled up, this is a submission and anxious behaviour. It can be really tricky not to hug, stroke or coo at them here, but the best thing for your relationship with them is to back off and give a little more space. Conflictingly, they may repeatedly follow you with this behaviour, its just their way of saying ‘please please please don’t hurt me, I’m so small and you’re so big’ so best just to let them work through this alone.
