Psychology Today says dogs don't like hugs | The Tylt
Dog owners are probably really upset today. New research collected by a scientific researcher at Psychology Today claims that most dogs don't actually like hugs. Yes ... you read that right! Allegedly, hugging your dog stresses them out. But many dog owners and lovers are in denial.
Does this prove hugging such loving creatures really stress them out? Or can this research be wrong because you've experienced how much dogs love hugs?
Some news outlets called out the study for lacking evidence. The study was conducted by one man from Psychology Today, who studied 250 photos of dog hugs from Google and Flickr.
But is it possible? Do #DogsLoveHugs or do #DogsHateHugs?
