In this week’s AbsoluteDogs TV Episode, we discuss:
Do you ever have strangers, guests, kids or visitors come up to you and ask if they can “pleeeeease” pet your dog?
No matter how big, small, fluffy, smooth, tough or cute our dogs look, there are always going to be people who want to rush up and gush over your canine companion! It’s such a tricky situation to be in. You don’t want to have to explain yourself, or risk offending anyone, when you say no – however at the same time, you don’t want to have a stranger handle your dog or have a child grab at them inappropriately.
Maybe you know your dog worries about strangers and doesn’t enjoy greeting people. Perhaps they might enjoy human interactions a little too much and start bouncing, barking and jumping and your full focus goes into managing their behaviour.
No matter the reason WHY you might need to say no when people ask to greet or pet your dog, Lauren is here in this episode to arm you with some top tricks, tactics and tips that can help you easily navigate and avoid those awkward and tricky situations!
From easy positions to place your dog in around your body, to advocating for your dog’s best interests by simply saying “No thank you, my dog won’t enjoy that experience”, we have you covered in this episode!
