FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 45:22 Ask Permission Before Approaching an Unknown Dog

Labrador Lesson for 11-10-22:

Ask permission before approaching an unknown dog.

As Labradors, we are friendly, energetic dogs, and because we’re also cute, we’re accustomed to humans and other dogs wanting to approach us when we’re out and about. We request that you please ask our humans before reaching out to touch (or sniff) us. This is for your safety as well as ours. If a stranger startles one of us, we might react with a growl…or worse…

Whether you have 2 legs or 4, it’s a good idea to get permission before approaching an unknown dog. Dogs might be leash aggressive…or in training…or afraid of strangers. Asking permission before approaching the dog helps to keep everyone safe.
