good one Sheri, yeah I've seen that one , but it's a good one for sure. Very important stuff . Sometimes we punish them when we want to reward them Watch the pats over the head, them are the dangerous ones, a lot of dogs don't like them.Scratches Under the chin or chest is best.

Brody does this too, quite forcefully actually. He woke me up this morning butting his head under my hand and arm trying to wake me up for pets! It made me laugh and immediately think of this thread!

The odd thing is, he will back away when the hand comes at his head, but once I am rubbing/petting his head, then he head butts me if I stop.
