Speaking from a dog’s point of view
Would you let someone off of the street that does not know you touch you.
I would think most people if you walk straight up on them and start touching them majority of people would have a problem with that.
But you hear people say that I’m good with dogs and I like dogs.
Most people will stop trying to pet your dog when they get right up on your dog.
There is about 4 million people approximately bit every year.
If a pack of wolves or coyotes go into an area they’re not supposed to they will get kicked out.
So they have different areas to protect. A homeless dog will try to move away from you to avoid biting you.
Majority of dogs that are homeless street dogs wild dogs they do understand this it’s hardwired in them.
Speaking from a dog’s point of view. When you approach me I don’t know who you are. When you’re staring at me you make me feel uncomfortable.
I give you all the signals and still you don’t seem to understand I don’t want you touching me. From the dog’s point of view I look up at my owner or the person that is walking me to see if she or he is going to help me. I don’t seem like they’re paying attention to what’s going on. Means from the dog’s view you don’t feel grounded.
What I mean is not feeling safe. Remember I am on a leash I can’t get away. I’m being told to sit and not to move. And someone’s coming at me I don’t know who they are I’m fearful of my life. I can’t run away because the leash is on me.
One thing that is very important is the dog is waiting for you to take care of it having the person stop have the person move away from the dog would be respectful to the dog.
the dog will start trusting you more. Same principle when you’re walking your dog and someone else brings her dog up to your dog. Everything might work out perfect but all it takes is one dog to jump on your dog from that point you will have a dog that is dog aggressive.
I have witnessed a dog walking up to another dog on a leash from the owner’s point of view it looked perfect but from my point of view sitting across the street I saw a different story. I would have to say it wasn’t a good story.
I have a test for you I have about 40,000 pictures on Google plus. And quite a bit on Facebook. Do you think you could go up and pet one of these dogs.
Dogs always give off a body language that most people don’t understand. The only advice I would have if you had a dog that was little bit fearful and scared of other people put a jacket on the dog that says do not touch. In one situation I saw a person coming from behind and petting someone else dog and the person didn’t know about it the dog turned around and bit them that dog got put to sleep.
So what I am really saying for humans is to be respectful and not put your hands on someone else’s dog that you do not know. After doing this for many years I’ve seen too many incidents where it was fine for the first 45 minutes. The dog was laying down getting pet by someone. After that person was done petting them the dog bit him.
So I say not a good idea. Some dogs are just perfect and have no problems whatsoever. But I want my dog to be into me more than other dogs. Imagine having your dog so into you all he pays attention as you.
Oftentimes I hear people saying I trust my dog. We don’t want to teach the dog how to use his teeth to fix problems..
so the end of the day my advice is don’t put your dog in a situation where you’re not making decisions. If you don’t make decisions than your dog will have to make a decision.
