How Not to Greet a Dog

I saw this over on Adventures of a Dog Mom and had to share too.

I'm probably guilty of getting over excited and greeting a dog wrong in some circumstances, and it's only really since we've had Del which I understand the importance of greeting a dog in a way which isn't threatening or frightening for them.

Now I come into contact with lots of dogs on our walks, it's just as important for the owner to know how to approach a dog as it is to train your dog how to behave around other pups.

I think this is a great graphic and hope it can teach people a thing or two about how to approach dogs they've never met before.
