Dog Hates Me 🐕

There's this dog at work that barks at me every time I walk by it because I accidentally kicked it a few weeks ago.

What do I do? It's getting annoying.

    Piece of bacon every time you walk by. It'll eventually be anxious to see you.

      Do potato chips have the same effect? We have a large supply here

      Ask its owner what kinds of treats are ok to give it. Chips might make it sick. Treats are definitely the best way to a dogs heart tho.

      ^agreed about asking the owner first. Also because you never know with these city dogs that have their own gender pronouns, are lactose intolerant and are sensitive to fat shaming.. according to their owners.

      There are so many organic treats available at Target for dogs. Just get one of those packs and keep feeding it everytime you walk by. Or see if you could get some free snacks frol google microkitchens..

      A piece of chicken every time you walk by - healthier than bacon, still delicious. But check with the owner first.

      Cooked Chicken bones can kill dogs. They break at jagged angles and get stuck in throats.

      If it bites you, it won't be allowed at work anymore. Looks like you've already got your solution right there

    Grab some plain or string cheese from the MK and accidentally drop it near the dog. You'll see his tail start wiggling next time you walk by.

      By default they can (modulo SF hipster dogs with lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance and all around smugness), and it's one of their favorite treats, ime. Just don't get spicy cheddar or anything not plain, unless you want to give the dog some unpleasant stomach feels.

    If the owner is willing to help, ask them to bring the dog to a neutral place and train on de-escalation/neutralization, which can be done using treats or behavior modification techniques. Or the easier/less guaranteed way is to try to de-escalate in situ with treats and reassurance.
