#43 – How to greet strange dogs – Interview with Tenderfoot Training
Pet podcast #43 features an interview with Doug Simpson of Tenderfoot Training. In this interview we discuss how to greet strange dogs and common mistakes people make when greeting dogs. One point in particular is that contrary to popular thinking, we don’t need to shove our hands in a dog’s face for the dog to smell us to know that we are ‘good’. That can make a strange dog VERY uncomfortable and besides, a dog’s nose is 1000 times more sensitive than a human’s nose. This means that if the dog can see you, the dog can ALREADY smell you from afar.
