Absolutely devastated! Who doesn't love a cuddle with their little dog, well apparently our pooches don't. 

In a study published in Psychology Today, Stanley Coren says that dogs get stressed out when given affection.

The signs of anxiety in dogs are obviously showing their teeth, turning their head away, and closing their eyes. 

The research is pretty conclusive, maybe it's best to opt for belly rubs instead of cuddles.
