Vil hunden din ha kos?

Vi mennesker ser på kos som et tydelig tegn på kjærlighet og ros. Å kose en hund gjør at hjernen vår sender ut oxytocin, også kalt kjærlighetshormonet eller tilknytningshormonet. Det er dette som gjør at vi blir glade i andre og knytter oss til hverandre. Hunder som får kos får også kroppen pumpet med dette hormonet – sett at de liker å få kos.

Vi bruker ofte kos for å signalisere til hunden at nå var den flink, eller at vi generelt er fornøyde med den. Men visste du at ikke alle hunder setter pris på kos? Noen synes rett og slett ikke noe om kos. For disse hundene vil kos oppleves som noe ekkelt og ubehagelig, ja faktisk rett ut straffende.

For å teste ut dette, kan du gjøre slik jeg har fått ei venninne til å demonstrere med mine hunder i filmen under. Sett deg på gulvet og kos med hunden din. Helt ut av det blå slutter du å kose. Hvordan hunden reagerer gjør det lett å bedømme om den liker (denne typen) kos. Følger den etter hånden din eller reagerer med å dytte på deg og liknende, betyr det at den vil ha mer. Går den bare eller ikke gjør noen ting, da er det ikke noe hunden ønsker mer av.

Her gir Hugin mange signaler som uttrykker at han ikke synes dette er helt ok, alt fra å slikke snute til å se vekk, vender seg bort, rister seg, går unna. Man kan prøve seg frem på ulike steder, det er ikke før personen lener seg over han og rett og slett omfavner han at han ikke ønsker mer kontakt, og det å bli strøket på halsen eller forsiktig andre steder setter han derimot pris på. Ulike hunder krever ulik tilnærming, og noen hunder liker rett og slett ikke kos. Det er viktig å ikke ta dette personlig, men heller respektere at hunden synes det er ubehagelig.

I just realised I had not updated my Instagram on this beautiful little girl. Millie came back to us after being re-homed two years ago due to severe behavioural issues. She had become aggressive and fearful and the family decided it was best for her to get a new chance somewhere else. For a while, everything seemed to go the right way. Slowly she started trusting us and let her guard down and as the weeks went by she started to relax more and more. Unfortunately, this extraordinary girl, even though she had let her guard down a little, lived a life in constant fear. Every tiny little noise would make her fly up and bark fanatically, and when she was not sleeping she would pace back and forth in stress. She was wary around people and very sensitive towards body language. We could not trust her around people or children as she would send mixed signals and this girl could easily have bitten someone. We therefore decided to put her to sleep. To end her fears and axieties. Her very last day on this earth was spent doing everything she loved. We played fetch, drove the car around, cuddled and ate hot dogs. She wagged her tail from the moment she woke up till she closed her eyes for the last time. I will never forget you Millie. You were such a sweet soul, and you earned your forever-spot in my heart. You deserved better. Sleep well, my sweetheart 💕 #love #missyou #dog #dogtraining #itried #deservedbetter
