Default Are you a dog hugger? Think again

Yes, that's me. Guilty as charged. I am a hugger. Perhaps I am projecting a human emotion on my dog, but it brought me comfort. Then I saw this article.

Psychologist recommend against hugging your dog. I guess I had never seen this fear in my Kippers eyes, but its worth a discussion. How does your dog react to a hug?

PetGuide already started a thread on this. The "research" behind the supposed argument that hugging your pets is bad is highly questionable.
