At our house, the pups order belly rubs in bed on a daily basis. Dolly rolls over onto her back, going into the full stretch that serves as my cue to pay her tummy some attention. Spot likes to provide a moving target, fully expecting me to rub his belly while he scratches his back against the bedspread.

With that in mind, I put together the following list of dogs who demand a belly rub NOW.

Like my Spot, this adorable dog prefers to multitask. He will chew on his toy while I rub his belly.

Over on the Paws Abilities blog, a trainer discusses how to tell whether your dog wants a belly rub right NOW: Look for soft eyes and a loose, wiggly body, but avoid reaching out to a tense dog with wide eyes.

Frenchie thought bubble: My humans never give me belly rubs anymore. So, I will stare at them with my soulful brown eyes until they realize the error of their ways. I am not above being passive-aggressive to get a belly rub.
