Asserting Dominance. When encountering a new dog, you may want to ask yourself if the dog is sitting on me to assert his dominance.

If you recently added a new dog to your pack, one of them may sit on you to assert that he's the top dog.

By sitting on people, dogs often feel higher and more in control.

Since dogs consider their owners a part of their family and pack, they want to lay on top of them to show them that and to provide them with comfort and security as well as receive it in the process. Laying close to their owner is also their way of protecting what they love, even if there is no real threat or danger.
