— Ask the owner before petting Rover.

—Petting the chin is where to begin.

—Respecting his space will save your face.

—If he has a bone, leave him alone.

—Quiet and slow is the way to go.

—If you run and shout, he’s gonna freak out.

—He’ll think you’re the bomb if you act very calm.

—Whether girls or boy, never tease or annoy.
