Instead, people easily initially fall into the category of “unfamiliar” or “stranger,” which can elicit unintended dog behaviors. In one study, shelter dogs barked more and were more apt to maintain eye contact with unfamiliar men than unfamiliar women outside their kennel (Wells & Hepper 1999). Attending to ladders of aggression, like that provided by Shepherd (2009), reveals that dog response to threatening or stressful stimuli (social, environmental or other) tends to be graded. A dog is apt to yawn, lick, look away, and move away before stiffening, growling, snapping, and finally biting.

In one study, dogs in interactions with unfamiliar people were more “alert to their surroundings” (Pullen et al. 2012). In another study, dogs were apt to show fear‐appeasement behavior, described as “tail down, ears down, and crouching,” upon an unfamiliar, friendly person’s invitation to interact (Barrera et al. 22 Chapter 1 2010). In that case, the shelter dogs maintained proximity to the unfamiliar person, and their behavior could indicate a mixed‐motivational state. While dogs appear to value human contact, it appears that quality of interaction might be the most important element.
