How to approach a dog

How to approach a dog akc: Always walk slowly with your fist curled with the back of your hand facing upward, palm down. Extend your hand slowly toward the dog. Give the dog time to investigate your hand, sniffing it. As the dog relaxes gently and slowly move your hand back and forth to rub the chin of the dog slightly. Pay attention to the dog's reaction. Be cautious. You don't make giant friends every day either!
