A Barkzilla PSA

Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not react well to grabbing, aggressive petting or squealing-- especially if they don't know you. (And nor do their owners.)

We know that everyone gets excited about spotting a Barkista, especially in NYC where they're ever so chic, but would you run up to a celebrity screaming and flailing your arms?

No, you'd want to appear relaxed and nonchalant. Right? 

On that note, here are some great tips for approaching dogs like a pro from Howdini and Tracie Hotchner, author of The Dog Bible. Follow this advice and strangers and their dogs will thank you. Really.

  1. That is one big dog! Kinda remind me of the guard dog at my dentist newtown square pa clinic which my kid dreads, not for the dental procedure, but for the dog. Oh my God. :)
