Although not all dogs do, most of them enjoy being petted and getting kisses. A birthday can be a good opportunity to treat your dog to a longer than usual cuddle or several cuddle sessions during the day, if he likes physical contact. However, to ensure that your dog enjoys the cuddle, it is important to stroke him in the right way, concentrating on the areas behind his ears, on his shoulders, neck or chest, and avoiding his paws and the top of his head. You should also be alert to signs that the dog is tired of being petted, or even that he doesnt appreciate it (yawning, licking his nose, looking away, etc.) and stop immediately. Finally, it is best to avoid hugging your dog, as these gestures are not appreciated by dogs.
