Letting It Be

When a dog is misbehaving, what’s the one common element, no matter what the problem is? Think about the misbehaviors: jumping on people, pulling on the walk, barking too much, peeing in the house, chewing things up, being aggressive, being fearful… They all sound like a lot of different issues, don’t they? How Are Different Behaviors Related After all, the same thing can’t possibly make one dog aggressive and the other fearful. A dog won’t bark for the same reason that it pulls on the walk. Right?

Bounce Back Like A Dog

One of humanity’s most powerful emotions is empathy. It’s a trait not shared by a lot of animals, although elephants, dolphins, whales, and chimpanzees seem to be capable of it. So are our dogs. However, being human and emotional, we take our empathy a step further and do something that animals do not: we feel pity for other living things, and we can feel pity for ourselves.

Here And Now

At this moment, you’re reading these words on some electronic device — a computer at home or work, a cell phone on the bus, a tablet just about anywhere. But, even as you’re reading these words, you’re somewhere else. You’re thinking about something that happened last week or worrying about something someone said this morning; you’re planning your next meal, trying to remember whether you left the oven on, hoping that your vacation plans will work out.

Act In The Now

Happy Easter and Happy Passover! This time of year in the north (and both holidays) is all about new beginnings and renewal. Mother Nature is waking up from winter, Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus, and Passover is all about the Jewish people making a new start by leaving Egypt in the Exodus. In some cultures, New Year is around this time, as is Earth Day. Making a new start is often a scary idea to people, but if you pay attention to Nature — specifically to your dogs — you can learn how to do it easily. If you
