On SheKnows.com, Brian Ogle was heavily quoted in an article that questioned whether dogs enjoy hugging as much as their masters do. He counseled readers with insight such as this: “Dogs will communicate their discomfort of the situation. Signals of discomfort may include licking their lips, turning their head away from you, yawning and shaking their body vigorously after the interaction has occurred.”
