Dogs, man’s best friends! Why Your Dog Hates You. From hugging your dog to how you do walks wrong, here are the things your dog hates about you and wishes you knew!
12 You Talk To Much!
Understanding someone in a language you don’t speak, is hard! Dogs are no different, although the smarter breeds like collies, shepherds can understand up to 250 words, others may only get a few. So, if you want your dog to understand, you have to be very clear in what you are saying with your mouth and your body. According to experts, the best thing, besides human training during dog classes in to not “talk” to your dog, just be silent and see what the dog thinks you are saying! Like charades!
11 I Hate Hugs!
10 Don’t Touch My Face!!
Let me put it simply, some stranger approaches you and the first he does is touch your face or head? Reaction? I am sure you pulled away very fast maybe even had the urge to tell them to stop, if not worse. Your dog would love for you to know that he does not like it either!!!!! If it was up to him, a snarl or even a show of teeth at least, would have happened. So, your dog wants me to tell you that he tolerates you doing it because you are the boss! But tell others to pet his back right by the tail… that’s the spot!
9 I Have Sensitive Ears!
8 I Look Silly On Those!!
Dressing your dog in a costume! am guilty of this too! According to the experts, dogs think being dressed up is just not as much fun as it is for you!! Smaller dogs fall victims to the dressing up more so than larger breeds! Some may actually love it, if they are social, all eyes on them may work! But if you have a shy dog, people staring at him will make him anxious and uncomfortable. In the dog world, looking at another dog in the eyes is a sign of challenge or threat, so all that attention… Only a dog’s favorite human could gaze into his eyes and feel love in return….
7 I Get Sad Too!
6 Don’t Make Me Bite You!
Each dog is different, and would react to being approached based on their experiences. it’s very important to warn anyone who wants to pet your dog. We, as dog owners have the responsibility to protect our furry friends. And just like with our children, part of caring and loving them is to learn to recognize when they are feeling vulnerable. When your dog is being approached to be pet, is your dog tense? Is the head away? Avoids eye contact? Are the ears down? Are they licking their lips? Is the tail tall and stiff? If any or all of those are yes answers…
