Greeting Dogs

House sitting with dogs means you meet a lot of dogs, and all of them want to know if you’re a leader or a follower. When you use great manners to say hi, you gain a lot of credibility and respect, the dog sees you as a potential leader and your house sit is off to a great start.
How would you feel:
• If a stranger stared at you?
• If a stranger got very close and begin babbling incoherently?
• If a stranger touched you without permission?

Lead or Follow?

Sometimes our house-sits come with one or more dogs and sometimes the dogs are a little…challenging. When house sitting with dogs, do you:
• Accept how the dog behaves because “it’s not my dog”.
• Correct some behavior, the stuff that bothers you.
• My pack, my rules. Lead the dog.
