The dog’s disappointment is immeasurable, and his day is ruined. And, yes, it’s absolutely devastating and heartbroken. Really the dog is hurt by this tragedy. Actually, dogs are creatures of habit, so they are habituated to getting treats as a reward for good behavior. When they don’t get the treat, they feel like they’ve done something inappropriate, and their disappointment is obvious. Dogs also have a deep understanding of consequences.
When dogs don’t get the treatment, they were expecting, they can’t help but feel like they’re being punished, even if they don’t know why. This can be frustrating and even lead to sorrow and disappointment.
For example, if a dog is expecting a treat for performing a trick but instead gets scolded, it may hang its head and slink away. This is a clear sign of disappointment. This is similar to a child’s reaction when they don’t get the toy they wished for their birthday. They may put on a brave face, but the dissatisfaction is evident.
