Staring is a common dog behavior that indicates our pup needs attention or that it tries to tell us something.
This staring action can be manifested differently depending on what our dog tries to transmit.
For example, when he stares at you and whines, your companion may seek attention, love, petting, play or it feels bad.

But, when your dog stares at you while laying down is a bit different.
When a dog stares at you while laying down means:
1. It doesn't want to loose contact with you/ Keep its attention on you.
Dogs do this, especially when they are "in love" with their owners.
2. Your dog is observing you
A quite normal behavior when your dog is just observing you while laying down and chilling. Nothing to worry about.
3. It is comforting itself with your presence
Some dogs find comfort in maintaining eye contact with their owners while laying down.
So, it is nothing to worry about if you observe this behavior in your dog.
Your dog may stare at you for a reason, so it's crucial to be attentive to what's happening when they do that.
You can learn more about why they are watching you with their eyes by observing their body language.
