This is a visual guide for anyone interacting with “hyperactive,” “jumpy,” “mouthy,” or “scratchy” dogs who really want to interact with us but don’t know how to ask for and receive affection and interaction. Interaction Guidelines are the first step of Constructional Affection, which establishes desirable interactions between people and their dogs. These guidelines set the foundation for mutually enjoyable relationships with our precious dogs.
*Never use this guide with dogs showing signs of fear or aggression.
