My puppy is 7 months old and 5lbs. Sheâ€™s a Maltese mix and sweet as can be.
Despite this I donâ€™t want people petting her without asking. Sheâ€™s never bit anyone but Iâ€™d rather not take the risk of something happening with says someoneâ€™s child
When Iâ€™m in the street Iâ€™ve literally had people behind me just start petting her without saying a word to me. Kids have run up to her screaming and grabbing her with the parents saying nothing
Because sheâ€™s a little fluffy dog people think itâ€™s ok to do whatever they want. I put a sign on her harness that said â€śdo not petâ€ť and it did nothing to deter people from wanting to pet the fluffy puppy.
How can I get people to stop petting my dog without permission? I live in a city and walk her in a city that is why so many people pet her.
