approaching dogs safely
Dogs are animals that need to have space. Dog fights or bites to people can occur if dogs become fearful when approached.
There are a few simple principles to observe when approaching dogs.
- Allow the dog to approach you,
- Approach with a side on posture,
- Some dogs are happier if you crouch down near them,
- Hold your hand out for the dog to sniff and if it is happy gently tickle under the chin,
- Avoid eye contact with an unfamiliar dog,
- Give tethered dogs and dogs in crates a wide berth,
- Do not let dogs on lead interact with each other. The dogs' natural instinct is to flee if they are uncomfortable with a situation; the lead prevents this.
If you see a dog with a yellow bandana, ribbon, vest, yellow lead or collar give the dog lots of space! This is a sign that many dog owners use for dogs that need space.
