I'm curious...when is the right time to show affection to a dog. Cesar Millan says that you should only show your dog affection when they are acting submissive. If they are excited, nervous, scared, anxious, or acting dominate, you should not show them any affection. He says that when a dog is acting dominant you should not show them any affection until they act submissive. Does anyone agree with his views on this? I've never heard of such a thing. I would like to know what other people think. Thanks in advance.
