We’ve all been there. You have to be with your dog and they’re not allowed inside the house. What do you do? You wait to hear them come into the house and then you put a hand on the door and give them permission to go to the kitchen. Then you continue on your way. My friend, the one who likes to take pictures of his dogs on the street, has a dog that has that very same behavior.
This is one of those situations that you can see happening all the time if you really look for it. I once had a dog who would do this in the middle of the street. At first I was going to just leave him there and go about my business and he would never hurt me again, but I decided to do something about it.
Your dog is probably not acting out of fear of you, but of some sort of territoriality. As long as the dog sees you and knows the boundaries of your property, he is not likely to do this. If your dog doesn’t like someone, it’s unlikely to do this to them. I’ve had dogs who have attacked other dogs, and the dog that attacked him has never done this before.
This is true, but it applies to almost all dogs, not just dogs. If your dog is doing this, it is likely out of fear. It is likely out of fear that you or somebody else will be attacked and that you will lose your dog, or worse.
This is also true for cats, but I would caution against making the mistake of thinking that a cat is out of fear. Most cats dont fear dogs, and even cats that do fear dogs, do not fear dogs that happen to be in the same room as the cat.
The correct term is “nose-to-head”, which is the direction the dog is facing. To the dog’s nose, the dog is looking at the cat. To a dog, a cat is a potential enemy. The dog wants the cat out of the way or the cat is a threat…and it’s a big threat.
This is the same principle that holds true for dogs as well as cats. A cat, being a threat, may be scared or want to be left alone, but a dog is a danger to its owner. This is why I have to stay in the bathroom if my dog is in the room. It is not about fear. It is about self-preservation.
It also goes the same way for us dogs as it does for cats. If our dog is at home in the house, we are less likely to be threatened from a dog. But if our dog is not home at all, then we are more likely to be threatened from a dog. This is why you should always keep a dog on a leash. Your dog may be a pet, but it is still a threat.
It is important to note that even if a dog is not at home, you still have the right to take it with you. This is one of the reasons why I don’t allow my dog to sleep in the kitchen at night. I can’t let my dog be in a kitchen that is the front door. The kitchen is for food, so you don’t want your dog in it.
