Things Humans do that Dogs Dislike
Dogs try to be our best friends, but we make it difficult sometimes. We don’t think that we could be doing something that makes them uncomfortable, sad, or scared. There are certain things that human sometimes does that dogs don’t actually like.
All dogs do not like hugging. Some affectionate dogs will happily bask in any love that comes their way. But for many dogs, wrapping them in your arms may be interpreted as a sign of dominance, and can make them feel trapped. It really depends on their personality.
Observe the pup’s body language: pinned ears, stiff posture, and a tense expression means the dog is not enjoying the embrace as much as you are.
2. Saying commands with too many words
We have such a close bond with our dogs that sometimes we forget that they don’t understand most of what we are saying. This is most important when it comes to giving commands. To eliminate confusion, keep it simple and in the present when giving commands or directives.
Yelling will likely make them anxious or scared or maybe they are completely desensitized to it, and most of the time they won’t even know what are you saying. Instead of scolding your pup, instruct them to do what you want them to do.
4. Touching their faces
Some dogs love their faces being gently stroked by their loved ones. On the other hand, some dogs will tolerate fingers near their faces but don’t enjoy, especially if the petting is too rough or unpredictable.
5. Eye contact
Avoid eye contact with dogs you don’t know. Dog owners can gaze into the eyes of our pooches, in fact, it can be a sign of love.
6. Not letting them sniff their surroundings
For the dog, a nice walk with lots of sniffing is their version of hopping onto social media and checking out what is going on with the neighbourhood pups. Try to be a little more sensitive to your dog’s sniffing obsession next time you are on a walk. Also don't allow them to eat rubbish, which is very important.
7. Dressing them up
Silly costumes make most dogs uncomfortable in one way or another. Try getting the mused to light sweaters and jackets in chilly weather.
8. Leaving them alone too much
Dogs are pack animals, and they live for you. Spending many hours away from him or ignoring him can make him sad. Make sure you spend time with your pooch once you are home.
9. Being surrendered to a shelter
Dogs that are surrendered from the families that they know and love become completely heartbroken.
Some dogs are so terrified of fireworks they will hide under the bed or even climb over high fences to escape the noise. Help your dog cope by keeping them inside with windows closed to lessen the noise and reassure her during the fireworks show.
