In contrast, we have a baby who wants so badly to hug his dogs.
Step 1. You must start off in an excellent mood. Dogs generally do not want you to hug them if you approach them screaming.
Step 2. Find a target...I mean dog. Open your arms wide for the approach.
Step 3. Hug. Please note that some dogs stay still and let you hug them for as long as you want.
And some dogs believe that they are in some kind of calf wrangling competition and try and squirm away.
