yeah, most dogs don't really like being pet on the head...in fact a lot of dogs, no matter how friendly, don't enjoy petting at all...som' will just tolerate it.

As long as theres not another incident where Clover is cornered and unsure...I don't see a reason for the roommate to have to avoid the dog. Your roommate seems to realize the mistake and I doubt the situation will happen again...

That said, do whatever your comfortable with for now. You know him better than I do

it's so hard to get people to understand that! but yeah we'll keep working on everything....btw this is my first rescue and even though i thought i did research, i realize now that you just can't be prepared for it until you do it...i'm very lucky to be learning so much

Dogs to me are like children, you can prepare only so much. I think you are do a wonderful job and you have given great advice.

As for the head petting, my dogs LOVE physical attention from me but do not care much for other people loving on them LOL. I have met few dogs who want that kind of attention from other people besides their owners (minus my parents dogs', they love people HAHA)
