When it comes to living life at its fullest, dogs are doing it the right way. Here are some important life lessons we should all learn from dog behavior.
Animals mean no wrong, and when they do something they are only following their instinct and doing what makes them happy without other thinking and the fear of being judged. You might have noticed this if you live with in close contact with a furry best friend: there are many things that we can learn from animal behavior, and dog behavior in general. Here are some of them:
Never miss the opportunity of going out for a walk. Look forward to going outside; when it rains, when the sun is hot, when the wind is strong. Go out and take a walk every time you can.
When the people you love arrive home, never miss a chance to run to them and make them feel loved. Express your affection with no fears.
Let other people know when they have overstepped their boundaries. Let them know that there is a territory they cannot enter, a place that is only yours and for your loved ones.
Run and jump all day. Be cheerful and positive!
Be loyal, and do not fake being something you are not. Fun fact: the Pyrenean Mountain Dog is considered to be the most loyal dog breed, as it faithfully protects livestock at all costs.
When someone is having a bad day, just sit next to them and let them feel that you are close. Be a best friend in times of need.
Do not bite when all it takes to get your point across is just a simple growl.
Let other people know you are happy and try and make them feel the same way you do.
I hope you enjoyed reading these. There are so many positive things that we can from dogs, and from animal behavior in general. We just need to let ourselves go sometimes, and return a child at heart.
