I'm with most people here - I would never hug a dog that I don't know or that I know little. Come to think of it - I don't think I would hug anybody's dog except my own.

My rescue is happy with anything when it comes from the 3 people in her life she trusts. She turns into a pretzel when she want's to cuddle.

My 2 boys are snugglebunnies (or want to be) and they frequently come up to me to get my version of a hug. I will reach down and put my chin on their shoulder and reach down to pat their big chests. I'm not really "hugging" but it's close.
If I stand by the window and they stand up to look out with me I will put an arm around them and scratch the top of their chest.
I am teaching them to actually hug though - they stand on their hind legs and put their front legs on my shoulders but it almost always dissolves in me getting my face soaked! :eyeroll:
