Our dog scratches on the door when he wants to come inside. Lately he scratches but when we open the door he just sits there and looks at us but wont come in. What does he want?

My golden does this all the time. I assume he wants me to come and play with him.

Hey, I know that my dog and sometimes my partners do this just when they want our attention or when they want to spend time with us. More a personal observation than anything sound but its what they do. One of them will sit and wait at the door for extended periods of time just for my attention, always sorry when I get busy and can't spend every hour with him.

Hope this helps.
