I am certainly guilty of this even though I have had some education to know that dogs do not enjoy it; but did you know dogs don’t enjoy hugs? I know it’s a hard concept for me to grasp, because I love my pets. They are family, and like family they need hugs to, right? No. Most of the time dogs just tolerate our hugs. It can be very stressful to them. Selfishly I want to continue hugging my animals, but I would never want to do anything to make them uncomfortable. This isn’t stating that all animals hate hugs. Some are comfortable with it. Luckily this article helps explain some of the body language your animals can display if they are uncomfortable. Hope you enjoy.
