If I have Slow Life Slothvengers Shirt to put up with my dog shivering and panting in my face for hours on end just because he heard something that may or may not have been thunder or a scary movie he can put up with whatever I decide to throw his way. This is BS. Every dog I’ve had has initiated hugs. The “science” is skewed. Their definition of hug is grabbing the dog and encircling it tightly to the point where yes, it wants to get away. They also interviewed people that run dog daycares. Just like someone you don’t know hugging you gives you the creeps, dogs aren’t that different.

It makes sense to me – some love to snuggle up for a cuddle and others don’t. I let Slow Life Slothvengers Shirt them come to me, I don’t force them to cuddle – and I don’t hold them in a cuddle when they do come – they are happier and less stressed when they have freedom of movement. If you’ve seen the “Don’t Hug Your Dog” “news” article/video, I would take that with a grain of salt. The study uses photographs found all over the Internet, to analyze the stress of the dogs.

That is an unreliable study method, as the stressor is not easily determined from a photograph. The stressor on the dogs could be a hug, or it could be the photographer point the camera at them, it could be the work it took to get them to stay still for the picture that stressed them out. In some photos, there were pictures of dogs that were partially or fully picked up, which I’m sure causes some amount of stress. The dogs could be sick or injured as well.
I would like to see a study that uses live animals and has a control to accurately determine whether hugs are indeed the Slow Life Slothvengers Shirt cause of stress. Overall, the recent study by Psychology Today is unreliable at this point, and until the study is supported or rejected by follow up studies and more reliable methods, I would use your own best judgment on what you should and should not do with your own dogs, and of course always take precaution with other people’s dogs.
