Training Tip Tuesday, Human Greeting, Sponsored by Anytime K9

Hello my canine companions. It's Riley with another tip for your human. It seems that some humans don't know how to approach us if they do not know us. They are not sure how we communicate and so they go about greetings us all wrong. Well don't worry once again I am here to save the day.

The very first thing your person should do when approaching a new dog is ask your human "may I pet your dog?" This may seem like an unessasary step but it should not be taken lightly. Usually your person will know if you are the type that has a tendency to get a little nippy or even aggressive and will tell another human in advance. The next step is not to make quick sporadic movements because as you know this can sometimes freak us out and cause us to panic. Tell your human that the best thing to do is be calm and relaxed and pet us underneath our chins instead of on top of our heads. This minor detail may change the act your human is performing from suspicious to soothing and that, of course is what we live for, to be loved. Pass it on.
