Factors That Influence What A Dog Feels About A Person

Dogs differ in their response to a person. This can be traced back to certain factors that include the following:

Environment

The place where a dog meets a person for the first time can have an important effect on how a dog feels about the person. A dog that is timid or shy feels more comfortable when meeting a person in the dog’s territory. But a possessive dog may hate meeting someone new in his territory as he perceives it as encroaching in his personal space. A neutral territory may be an ideal meeting place for some dogs. 

Tone and vocal cues of the person 

A person’s tone of voice and vocal cues have an impact on how dogs perceive the person. Make your voice more welcoming and friendly by moderating your tone. 

Don’t hesitate to call your vet clinic Ellicott City, MD if you have any issues or concerns about your pet’s health and behavior.
