The reason your pet is avoiding you is not because of the way you look or smell, like humans judge others. Instead, your dog may feel scared of you, and there’s something you are doing to make it feel that way.
Most dogs adore being touched because it helps them destress and deepens their relationship with their master. However, there are moments when they want to be alone or are not in the mood, so it may not be a sign of a severe problem.
Dogs show fear by lowering their tail and tucking it between their legs. It’s an easy sign that your pet doesn’t feel good around you or that you make it feel anxious.
The average dog gets antsy when you make eye contact with it and will try to avoid your gaze. However, if this happens every time and it cringes when you do it, it’s its way of showing you feelings of discomfort.
The easiest way to tell if a dog has an issue with you is if it starts to make threatening growls to signal to you that it’s angry.
