This is not entirely your fault. You are young and have so much to learn. I have hope for you now that you no longer believe you know everything. Now you can grow.
1. The owner/handler should never have allowed you to attempt so much close smothering type affection.
2. You need to stop interacting with dogs in this way. It is not productive and will do nothing to help you achieve your goal as a trainer.
3. This is not humanizing and the fact you keep suggesting it is, tells me you still do not understand the term. Slow down......start at the beginning..take your time. Find a good trainer willing to mentor you.
Humanizing is when you thought it was gross for a dog to breed with ie. their mother, sister etc. You felt they should know better. That imo is humanizing.
