2 anxious dogs

2 Anxious Dogs

Both dogs were very anxious but this lady had no problem with me taking a photo of her with her two dogs.

Are these dogs afraid because I’m a man? Could be. Many dogs are afraid of men and this is due mostly to the lack of socialization or they’ve beaten/abused by men. Let’s face it, most abused dogs were abused by men, except for the puppy mills.

Are these dogs afraid because I’m a stranger? Could be. Many dogs are afraid of strangers and this is due mostly to the lack of socialization and/or some bad experience.

Are these dogs afraid because I have a mid-sized dog with me? Could be. Many dogs are afraid of other dogs and this is due mostly to the lack of socialization/meeting other dogs.

I tried to ask the girl about her dogs, she didn’t seem to understand what I was asking. She gave me the puzzled look.
