Is it okay to stare at my dog?

I stare at my dog all the time.

Yes. I think it probably makes your dog feel more important if anything. Just make sure you're still taking care of him properly and staring is not a problem at all. And if he stares back you could probably have staring contests and you'd probably win most of the time.

Don't do it if you have a treat; teasing them is cruel. But if it's all for fun, give it your best shot. Dogs have rather wet eyes so it will be difficult to beat it in a staring contest, but if you train and practice hard, you can eventually win :)

Your dog may be searching for a dominance stance with you and staring isn't always a bad thing, if the dog looks away first, it is submitting to you, I wouldn't stare at someone else's dog if you don't know it, but staring at yours is fine.

Some dogs will consider that a sign of aggression but it all depends on the dog. I stare at my dog all of the time.
