Prince Harry has been known to show PDA with his four-legged friends every dog he meets. (Like this one he encountered during a trip to Southern Africa in June 2010.)

No, really. His obsession dates back to when he was a little tot befriending random dogs in Mallorca, Spain. It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!

The trend continued throughout his teens. (You know, back when we thought we still had a chance with him.) In 2010, Prince Harry stopped a charity polo match to play with a golden retriever. Priorities, people.

A few months later, the prince broke royal protocol (again) when he greeted a service puppy-in-training.

In 2016, the prince was spotted bonding with a service animal in Orlando. Maybe he missed his calling as a dog trainer?

Behold: Yet another service dog. But this time, it’s Cooper, the dog of Royal Marine Phil Eaglesham. The prince has a gift, amiright?

He even cheered on an energetic pooch while visiting the University of Bath in 2017. “Atta boy.”

And stopped to smell the roses pet a pooch at the South African Wildlife College in 2015. In hindsight, this dog has no idea who he/she is ignoring.

This dog couldn’t help but let out a big yawn during the prince’s speech at the Veterans’ Mental Health Conference. Talk about a photobomb.

However, not all encounters are peppy, like this one at the Invictus Games in 2014. “Do as I say, and everybody gets a treat.”
