    So true. Our black tri Aussie, like many Aussies, tends to be a bit defensive with strangers. It's funny to see how people react, after they've said "My dog's friendly," when I respond "Mine's not!" Everyone's dog is supposed to be "friendly," right? Well, no. And in any case altogether too many of those who say their dog's friendly are...well, overstating things a bit.

    @slgwv Also --- some behaviors that are "friendly" for humans are not "friendly" for dogs. When 2 dogs meet in a friendly way, they turn away from each other, pee on stuff, give each other space... no direct eye contact.

    This is just fantastic and should be required reading before entering a dog park.

    This is great.

    I just wish I could give this out to every one we meet. Most people just seem not to get the idea that not all dogs want to sniff each other.

    Thank you for your posters. They're friendly and approachable. I think they'll be able to reach people who may otherwise be more intractable about dogs and living with dogs in public spaces.
