Podcast | Kiara – Seven Things Your Dog Doesn’t Like

 

Dogs are incredible creatures. They make excellent companions and devoted protectors. It’s difficult to imagine our lives without them.

Most people are aware of what their dogs like and dislike. Dogs aren’t always shy about expressing their emotions. Other times, dogs remain silent, as if nothing is wrong.

As a pet owner, it is critical to understand when you are doing things that your dog enjoys versus things that he dislikes, or when you are doing things that could harm him. Dogs deserve to be treated with dignity and comfort. They, too, have limitations. Some things frighten, stress, and frustrate them.

1. Using Words Instead Of Body Language

Body language is more perceptive to dogs than words. If you constantly yell at your dog instead of attempting to communicate with him through body language, he will become irritated. Dogs become perplexed when their body language says one thing and their voice says another. It is preferable to be consistent in both what you say and how you say it.

2. Hugging Them

It’s natural for you to want to hug your dog, but he might not like it. Your dog does not see a hug as a way for you to express your love. He interprets it as you attempting to restrain or restrict his movement. He may even interpret it as a sign of aggression. A good belly rub would be much more beneficial to him.

3. Petting His Face

Those adorable little faces are difficult to resist, but dogs do not enjoy having their faces petted. They’ll put up with it, but they’ll never enjoy it. Dogs interpret this as a sign of aggression as well. Allow your dog to pet his face if he pulls away from you. Pet him somewhere else if you want to rub his ears.

4. Patting His Head

If your dog has been a good boy or when you come home to see him, you might want to pat his head, but he doesn’t want you to. It makes him feel uneasy and perplexed. It looks too much like a punch, and it’s too close to his face. Instead, pet him from the neck down.

5. Eye Contact

You’ve probably heard that you shouldn’t look a dog in the eyes. That is correct. This is viewed as a challenge by dogs. It may pose an even greater challenge to strange dogs. It is acceptable to cast a glance at their face but avoid prolonged direct eye contact.

6. Lack Of Structure

When it comes to structuring, dogs are similar to children. They thrive on it and perform best when they know what is expected of them. Give your dog structure and let him know what he can and cannot do from a young age. He’ll be happier and more well-behaved.

7. No Routine

Dogs require routines. Every day, they should eat, go outside, and be put to bed or created at the same time. They are more likely to have accidents and develop behavioural problems when they are not on a routine.

Give the dog time and space, and make them feel safe. Be normal and go about your daily activities. You’ll probably notice that the dog warms up on its own after you start to ignore them for a while.
