The dog side eye is one of the cutest, most adorable, semi-judgy glances made by our best friends. It may seem like your dog is judging you or is simply bored with whatever you want him to do.
The side eye is sometimes called the ‘whale eye,’ and there’s a deeper reason for it. Dogs who want someone to back off or refrain from a behavior will often glance with a side eye appearance.
If a dog is guarding something or doesn’t want to be approached, a side eye is when the whites of the eyes (the sclera) are exposed, and your dog looks off to the side.
Sometimes a side eye look is pure cuteness overload, which the dogs in our roundup are all about. It’s hard to choose just one outstanding photo from this grouping, so enjoy all 23 dogs who have mastered the sideeye.
