KNOW YOUR DOG, it is your responsibility to make sure your dog is comfortable, if you see stress signals, take a break or excuse yourself from the visit.  Walking around may help, or you may need a long-term time off maybe a few weeks. Dennis's Therapy Dog Abby will paw at him, she only does that when she is getting stressed.  Again, KNOW YOUR DOG!
