Dogs are a huge part of American life; most pet owners love their dog like family. So you should be prepared to meet your voters furry friends.
This image illustrates the best way to meet a new dog and what not to do.
People believe their dog is an excellent judge of character; if the doesn’t like you his owner, the voter, will remember on election day. And she won’t be shy about telling her friends about how Buddy hated that candidate.
So make nice to the pups in your districts!
The dog HATES you! Now what? Blame your dog “he probably smells Lady my Beagle”. If you cannot be friends with the voter’s dog try to relate to them using your own pet. Do NOT makeup a pet or fib about loving dogs people will find out and you will be humiliated (lying during your campaign is ALWAYS a bad idea).
What about those beware of dog signs on the fence. Use your best judgement. Look for the dog; if he is acting friendly give it a try. Go with your gut, but when in doubt skip it. You can always mail a piece of literature or give those voters a call.
Most dogs are friendly so have fun meeting them and the voters who love them.
