Hugging Your Dog

Hugs are the human (and primate) way of showing love and support, but your dog may not be equally excited about it. Canids don’t have arms, so it’s kind of difficult for them to perceive affectionate gestures such as hugs. Plus, if a dog places his paw on the back of another dog, it is considered a sign of dominance, so your sweet hug may even come as a threat to your pup!

  1. We also NEVER hook the leash on the neck collar and use a harness when we hook them, many dogs are taken to the vet each year with throat ailments over hooking to collars!
