1. Hugging Them Tight

Hugs are a tricky subject when it comes to dogs. If it is your own dog then you can probably get away with some hugs but try not to squeeze too tight and try not to hug for too long.
In the canine world there is no reason why a dog would put its paws on another dog unless it is trying to show dominance or control over the other animal.
Even if your dog lets you hug it, you probably should be the only one doing that.
Don’t let strangers or kids try to hug the dog because this makes the animal feel threatened and very uncomfortable. A good old belly rub will come highly appreciated instead.
