Your Dog Might Not Actually Want to Play Fetch
If a dog is carrying around a ball or toy in its mouth, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it wants to play fetch. In fact, sometimes it can mean the exact opposite. Dogs will often bring toys to people they like so that you can play with it too.
They want to show it to you and let you enjoy it too, so instinctively throwing anything your dog brings to you might hurt their feelings.
When your dog leans on you, they’re not being too lazy to stand on their own.
