Greeting Dogs Politely

As adults, most of us think we know how to greet a dog, but I often see people trying to comfort a dog by saying “Its ok” while moving towards a dog who is growling & cowering (saying please stay away). Another common mistake is something as simple as petting the dog rudely on top of the head (often leading to a dog nipping at your hand non aggressively, but rather to say I don’t really like that) rather than pleasantly on its back or under its chin.
