Fuego. Yes, they go start. Hey, ago, his girl. It always makes you pick me up. Who let the dogs out, and they just can't help But smile, folks. That's all we've got to do. We asked my Omar smile through everything that we got open line to give our 6516411071 be happy to hear your questions and Okay. She petted dog between the years on the top of the head. No correct, Say, and wife. Because I feel like it has something to do with like they can't see what you're doing, or like, I don't know you're reaching over their eyeballs. I don't know what happens is that most people we've and I mentioned this, But I'm just going to keep mentioning because it's you knowing that it might be new listeners or yet, right? But most people when they meet a dog, they go directly to him, and they shoved their hand into up to the dog's nose like here. This is who I am and be just like a little say I meet you for the first man. I come up and shove my hand right into your nose and go. Hi, I'm Katie. And then its seed to go up over the top of the head between the ears and down the back of the net to pet. The dog went to the dog number one when you'd look directly at them, That's computational if they don't know you all right, So first of all, you always stay in sideways to the dog. Okay, so that aside profile to a dog. Is a common signal. Okay. Okay. So now you're a nasty owner. May I pet you right? But you pet your dog? Yeah, the owner and you might wanna pass. So anyway, so that then if they say yes. Now you ask the dog all rights on our side profile. More people just come up and go up over the top of the head and down the back of the neck. Which is a dominant moved to a dog. Okay. All right. So that's why you turned sideways and the sides towards the dog at eye level. Your take your thumb and everybody stand up right now, if you got your dog by a standup Stand sideways to your dog. Make your thumb to the side. That's towards you, Dog. Put it at eye level on your leg. And then you're gonna tap tap your thumb and then wiggle. Wiggle your fingers. Tap tap, wiggle, wiggle, tap tap legal, Wavell and you try that three times and the dog doesn't come into your hand. You know to say. Oh, hi. Yeah, you could pat me Then you're done. Just walk away and do something else. But then let's say the dog just come in. Then what you do is you just pet the sides of their face. Alright, just on the sides of the face or like down along the side or under the chin there, not the chin but the chest. Because now you're the dog can see where your hands are is what's right and and s O now it doesn't feel is threatening. But you don't look at the dog when you're standing sideways to the dog cap, tap, wiggle, wiggle. Look to the floor. Don't look at the dog, and if you look directly at their eyes, that's almost kind of another complication. Right. You're staring at me was the problem here. But if you just kind of let the dog warm up to you, But like I say, even if the dogs let's say the dog is like, three inches from your hand, Pat Cap wiggle, wiggle. You have no right to take your thumb off your leg. And go and pet the dog. Because now that you ask the dog in the dog is still where he doesn't want to come all the way in and have you pet them, right? They do. Then you don't put him on top of the head. You pet him along the side of their face and then let go down their side like a shoulder blade. And then maybe along the side of the dog or in the chest of the dog dogs love to be petted. In the chess where the V is and the chest. They love that, okay, and in behind the ears on the side that is at your side. No, don't reach over the top of your dog's head to pet him on the other side that makes him uncomfortable because there again, you kind of doing a dominant move going over the top of their head to get to the other ear. Could just pet the ear That is closest, you know, behind the of the closest to you, you know? Okay. Okay, Because too many people there give don't cater timeto understand?
