We might think we’re giving our dog positive vibes with our body language, but that may not be the case if we give off mixed signals.
Some dogs dislike hugging because it makes them feel vulnerable. Hugs make them unable to move and feel surrounded, but it may be okay for some breeds, depending on how much your dog loves you.
