Safety Concerns

All four paws should stay on ground

Collars should not be continuously tight (especially slip collars and head halters)

Dogs can pull many times their own weight. Be aware of smaller kids with strong dogs

Ask the dog (read body language). Stressed dogs and excited dogs should not be pet.

Ask the owner, avoid direct eye contact, let the dog approach. Pet on shoulder/chest, not over head.

One person at a time.
