We humans make assumptions about dog’s preferences for physical contact all the time. Unfortunately, sometimes we get that wrong. Usually, dogs that don't enjoy contact will tolerate it, but sometimes, they don't. When they growl, snap, or bite – we get upset. The first step to addressing this is to know where, how and in which contexts the dog in front of you does and does not like to be handled.
