6 Things  Your Dog hates  about  you

Pat them on the head

Pet parents love giving head pats to show affection. However, dogs dislike head pats. Most dogs avoid it and head away. They usually like their heads, ears, and faces massaged, which makes them happy, keeps them close, and makes them lean in for more.

Hug them

When a dog trainer or behaviorist says dogs don't like being hugged, the backlash is huge. Everyone says their dog likes hugs, but most don't. Canids, including dogs, don't embrace like primates. 

Hoard the ball during a game of fetch

You've undoubtedly held the ball while praising your dog. Your dog thinks you're hoarding the ball while playing fetch. They want it back now. 

Kiss them

Kisses mean nothing to dogs, but they do to humans. It's not their forte. Though we term them “doggy kisses,” dogs lick one other and humans. Putting your face next to a dog's can be scary. 

Hold one of their paws 

Dogs who have been rewarded for shaking or giving a high-five may like having you touch or hold their paws, but just briefly while sitting. Holding a dog's paw for a while is useless.

Use citrus-scented product

The fragrance of lemons, tangerines, and grapefruit bothers most dogs. This is why such scents are utilized in products to keep dogs from chewing on items we don't want them to.
