Meet My Dog - Animated
How to Meet a Dog for the First Time
Walk up to the dog's owner and ask them if the dog is friendly and get their permission before petting their dog.Some dogs, who tend to be docile animals, aren't docile and can get spooked when approached. If the owner seems as though the dog and the owner are not friendly, then hold back. If the dog seems unfriendly or misbehaved, reverse course and don't go towards it, as the owner then needs to take charge.
Approach the dog slowly but not as though you are fearful.If the dog thinks you are fearful, it will claim higher authority and possibly get sassy. But the best way is to let the dog approach you first, then you can make friends with it.
Hold out your hand slowly.Show it the back of your hand to sniff with your your fingers held together. This stance with your arms is a commonly-inherited trait to most dogs should (or will come to understand). The dog should have some knowledge about not biting you. Come down to this dog's eye level with your hand. Make all of this seem natural, as it will be if you've used it enough over time.
It is best not to look hard into the dog's eyes or to stare at it as this is a threat to any dog.
Ask the dog's name and after it has sniffed your hand and has accepted you, then gently touch the back or chest; but not the top of the head, as most dogs find this intimidating.The dog could get worried because it does not know you. Make this step done slowly.
Keep the meeting short.Dogs don't tend to like long meetings with strangers.
- If you get caught up in a conversation with the owner, lightly stroke the dog so that they know that you still are giving a little attention; though it's not necessary as just being around a balanced person is nice for a dog.
QuestionWhat about when a dog is meeting another dog for the first time?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerHold your dog back a little on the leash but allow him/her to sniff the other dog's nose. If they both seem calm and not frightened, scared or angry give your dog a bit of slack and allow them have a good sniff. They will smell each other's genitals, but this is normal as they are just checking out if the other dog is a male or female. If the situation gets rowdy or one or both of the dogs start acting odd, angry or scared walk away from the other dog, bringing your pooch with you.Thanks!
QuestionDoes a dog wagging its tail always mean it's happy?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWell, when a dog wags its tail upwards and quickly, it's excited. When it wags slowly, it questions your leadership and wants you to explain what you are doing at that moment. It doesn't always mean it's happy, but most of the time they don't question leadership.Thanks!
QuestionI want to walk my dog for the first time and it refuses to let me clip his lease, what should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerLure him to you with a small treat. Tell him to sit, give him the treat. Keep giving him small treats for sitting patiently and then clip his leash. He will get used to the routine.Thanks!
QuestionI met a new dog and I didn't know any better and I stared at them and pet their head. How can I not make them feel intimidated by me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStaring at a dog one time will not have a major effect on how the dog feels about you, especially if it's a very tame/friendly dog. Next time you see the dog, crouch down its level so it sees that you're not a threat.Thanks!
QuestionMy friend has a border collie and I'm nervous because, when I knock on the door, she starts growling. What should I do if she does that?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStay calm. If the dog knows you're scared, it will be protective of its territory.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I know a dog is nervous or becoming aggressive?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThe dog may back up and signal with its body that it is scared by raising its hackles and lowering its tail. It may also make growling noises and/or bare its teeth.Thanks!
