After dealing with my own pretty aggressive dog and how to introduce him to people, I wholeheartedly recommend that people check out this poster on how to not greet dogs!
The correct way includes:
- No eye contact
- Letting a dog approach you in their own time
- Keeping your side or back to the dog, which is viewed as non-threatening
From there, you can then acknowledge a dog (if it’s calm!) Check out the whole graphic here. Spread the word to help reduce incidences of dogs biting people who aren’t as familiar with how to react!
