"To me, a dog that is bored versus relaxing is actually super different," Shelby Semel, a trainer and behavior expert at Shelby Semel Dog Training, tells The Dodo. "Bored would look more anxious and stressed. Bored means they will chew and get into things because they have nothing to do, so they are going to find something to do. They will chew, jump, pace and you are usually trying to figure out if the dog is stressed or bored."
A relaxed dog, on the other hand, looks a lot like a relaxed you.
"When your dog is chilling in his bed, that's a dog that is relaxing," Semel says. "It's exactly what it looks like."
