I don't like this !
I tend to look at things from the dogs' perspective.
Just this morning I had the TV on as background noise while I was getting some things ready for my afternoon. The programme was Dogs with Jobs. Okay. There is a woman with a dog that is the poster-dog for something "friend not food" where she takes this fuzzy dog and others with their volunteer handlers to Chinese , in China , establishments. In this clip she was at a retirement home of some sort. The mission is to convince Chinese that dogs are friends , pets, not food .
The dogs looked pretty stressed , either rigid , or tongue curled panting , straining away .
Now this airport therapy for stressed travelers.
Dogs still deserve respect for personal space . They don't need to be stimulated by excessive , high emotions attention , hectic in-your-face intrusion , mobbed and mauled .
Sooner or later there will an incident where an animal will have met his threshold and snapped , break down. Even if it is a immune response or accelerated aging.
We tend not to get things right in our relations with dogs .
