There really is no better feeling than giving our pets a good snuggle. After a hard days’ work, an emotional event or even just for some love and comfort, many of us reach for our pets to boost our mood and keep us feeling safe and warm no matter how we might be feeling.
With National Hug Day just days away and human hugs being few and far between this past year, hugging your pet has never been more important. However, despite the obvious affection our four-legged friends share for us, imposing yourself onto a furry friend may lead to implications that keep those hugs far from happy. From overbearing squeezy squishes to unwanted anxious effects, we can often love our dogs too much, making them nervous around human contact if we impose on them when they aren’t in the mood.
