Our dog puts his big paw up towards us at various times. What does this mean?

Depends on situstion. Dog behavior is never straight foreard. Its usually attention seeking.

Looking for affection
by: Ed A from NJ

My pyre don't do it but my puppy Newfie does when I eat she put her paw in my lap. When she was pets she taps it on me over and over. When she want out she sits buy the door and put it up. So it seems to me she is using it to ask for what she wants. Just gotta watch close and interpret her needs at the time. It is kinda cute right now because she is only 115 pounds right now. Don't know if it will be when she is over 150. So I will try to stop the food taps but want to make sure not to stop her from some of the other. I'm sure if you watch closely you get the message.

.....pay attention to ME! It's a BIG PAW and so you notice! You stop what you're doing for a minute, look at him and say "stop". This word means nothing to him. He knows his gesture has achieved his purpose. That's his reward. Once he has broken thru your resistance, he will continue to pressure you to fulfill his desire. Whatever it is. You end up caving in, because you know he will not cease until he gets whatever it is he wants. So, who's teaching who, eh? ;)

Pyr Paw
by: Andy

I have seen several Pyrs do this , and my big Pyr Modo does it a lot.

I really like this dog. He landscapes my in-laws yard, guards the corner , and basically is just a cool dog. Slobbers bad.
