N’avoir pas de vs n’avoir aucune de

whats the difference between je n’ai pas de chen and je n’ai aucune chien

This relates to:

Je n'ai pas de chien. -- I don't have a dog. 

Je n'ai aucun chien. -- I don't have any dog. 

With aucun/aucune the negation is stronger.

Does the aucune form imply anything like distaste for dogs ( in this case )?  Eg, I dont  have any dog and don’t want ever want one?
