So here’s a topic I wanted to discuss... It’s been on my mind for a long time, and seeing a tweet from the Kennel Club tonight finally pushed me into talking about it instead of marinating in a corner of my brain.

Is it ok to pet a dog you don’t know?
My typical situation (which happened this morning, yet again). We are walking, talking to each other (yeah, I talk to Coop all the time) and enjoying our time. Then out of nowhere comes a stranger who stares at us and then, as we approach, reaches his hand out with “oh go on then!” and tries to pet my dog. I make an excuse saying Coop has muddy paws - doesn’t work. I tell him we are in training - doesn’t work. He just goes for it and pats my boy all over his head.

I smile and walk away hating myself... In the past I tried to tell people not to touch my dog. I was called names, blamed to be rude and even shamed for not socialising my dog!

The truth is... unless I know a person and I know that my dog is happy to be touched by him or her, I feel sick inside.

Why?
.
• People tend to go for the head touch. Which makes most dogs very uncomfortable because head is one of the most sensitive parts of the dogs body. While touching the head, many also brush the hands over his eyes without any care! .
• Every dog has his personal space and may not feel comfortable having a stranger invade it - and even worse, proceed with touches! My boys isn’t particularly shy, but there are a lot of dogs who can feel scared or react.
.
• I have a friendly dog but I do not want him to think that every stranger he meets is a good person. Dogs get stolen all the time. And dogs who treat every stranger as their friends are at higher risk.
.
• It is extremely confusing for a dog when some street strangers greet him yet others - don’t. Which makes outings very complicated.
.
• My boy (and many reactive dogs) can become excited when somebody greets them and end up jumping and barking. Then it is usually the dogs and the owners who are blamed for not “taming” the dog.
.
• Socialising has nothing to do with meeting everyone and anyone - it is still a controlled process.
.
• I wish people at least made an effort to ask if it’s ok to touch my
