This keeps coming up with no one ever pointing out that a yawn to a dog is a sign of discomfort. It's the second signal they use to indicate that they don't like something, the first being licking and turning away, and the third being leaving or aggression. So when a human yawns, especially one they are close to, they may just be reacting to the fact that their human is upset, which is a scary situation for a dog.
