Why is this? I have found that there are four different ways people interact with unfamiliar dogs.
And how people relate to dogs they don’t know makes all the difference in the world to dogs. The Cynophobic (pronounced sign-oh-phobic) Person is the unfortunate human being who is phobic of dogs.
Most Cynophobic Individuals try to avoid any contact or proximity to dogs and experience the following panic attack symptoms when they get too close: Feeling of terror Racing heart Feeling dizzy Tingling in the hands and fingers Feeling heavy Difficulty breathing Loss of control over dogs .
These people, surprisingly, get along well with just about any dog they meet because they don’t threaten or annoy dogs.
They simply do not want to connect with dogs and, ironically, most dogs prefer that kind of interaction when people first meet them. The Dog Lover Person is someone who absolutely loves dogs and wants to be around them as much as possible.
They have several dogs of their own and are often involved in some kind of animal volunteer work. But some Dog Lover Persons can’t understand why some dogs don’t like them that much when they meet them for the first time.
The reason is, unlike the indifferent dog person, they go overboard with attention when they first meet dogs.
Their voice gets loud and high, they move right into the dog’s face and they start petting the dog on the head – most dogs don’t like any of these things when they first meet a new human. The problem is aggravated because the Dog Lover Person notices that the dog does not respond to this attention, so he or she escalates all these annoying behaviors that only make things worse.
Many people in the pet industry, including some veterinary staff and veterinarians, have difficulty meeting and interacting with some dogs for this very reason. The Dog Knower Person truly loves dogs, but also understands them.
Not only do Dog Knower Persons understand at least the basics of dog body language, but they also understand the subtleties of meeting dogs they don’t know.
They know the five basic rules of initially greeting all dogs: Don’t look Don’t touch Don’t talk Don’t tackle Have a soft body. it is a discipline to enter their world in a way that they respond to, not in a way that people prefer.
Do stray animals or animals you’ve never met before approach and like you?
Have you ever wondered “why are animals attracted to me?”
Why are animals more attracted to some people than others
Animals often gravitate towards certain individuals like magnets.
Why do some people immediately become friends with animals, even those who are not necessarily animal lovers?
For some reason I’ve always found it easier to make friends with animals than people.
I don’t know if this is a divine blessing or just my body language, but animals feel comfortable and loved in my presence, as do I.
On multiple occasions this has made me wonder “why are animals attracted to me?”

Reasons why animals are attracted to you
Here are 3 main reasons why some people are easily attracted to animals –
Because every human has a unique scent, animals can determine whether you are friend or foe just by smelling you.
They can even know about your sex, health and mood by your smell.
So if a dog or cat approaches you, it’s probably because of the way you smell, which isn’t necessarily because of the smell of the food you recently ate.
While the residual smell of food is an important factor, your pheromones and the smell of your hair or skin can also attract animals to you.
However, the scent of other animals on your body, such as your own pet, can also attract strays and animals to you.

Our body language tells an animal a lot that helps them decide whether to approach us or not.

Once they know they are safe around you, they will look for other signs to determine if they can trust you to get some love and scratches.
