It's really cute to look at photos of people hugging dogs, but the reality is not so comfortable.
Many dogs do not enjoy hugs, especially from strangers.
Much like hugging, dogs tend to dislike it when humans get in their faces.
This is especially important if the dog does not know you well.
Your dog explores the world primarily through scent, Rushing your dog through a walk without allowing him to stop and sniff is unkind.
A routine is important because your dog has an internal clock.
Try to feed your dog at the same time each day.
No one likes to be yelled at or harshly punished (such as being spanked).
Dogs may not understand the words we are saying, but they sense your emotions when you do it.
