Vets Say Dog Hugs May Be Harmful.
We love our dogs. They bring joy, companionship, and unconditional affection. Hugs are often used to show affection.
Our pets may appreciate the gesture as much as we do. Some experts say embracing our dogs may not be the greatest way to demonstrate love.
Dr. Stanley Coren, a University of British Columbia psychology professor emeritus, studied dog hugging.
81.6 percent of the dogs looked distressed. Turning away, partially closing their eyes, ears down, lip licking, yawning, or lifting a paw were these indicators.
Evolutionary history helps explain why dogs may not like hugs.
Dogs are cursorial, or fast-running animals, according to Coren. In dangerous situations, they flee.
Hugging dogs, especially with young children, can be harmful. After hugging the dog, children often get bites, especially facial ones.
