Dogs can be amazing companions, friends and families.

Dogs can be the missing part of the puzzle of our lives, and definitely, they can show us the light we never had the chance to see.

But we know that Dogs can also add more problems to our lives and sometimes, many of us, will not know how to deal with such problems.

There will be times when we need to change our schedule, our actions, and sometimes our beliefs.

There will be times when we will be “against the wall” without knowing what to do about a dog’s behaviour.

But even then, when all seems “lost” keep in mind that the Dog is also struggling.

The Dog is struggling to meet his needs, the Dog is struggling to feel safe, the Dog is struggling to do better and also, the Dog is struggling to fulfil our human wishes.

No matter what, always remember that the Dog is also having a hard time.

No matter what, always show Compassion.

Because in the end, we are all Learning.

Thank you,
