I made a post about exercising puppies a few days ago …
And there were so many responses from dog owners who said they did “everything wrong” with their puppies (by jogging with them, playing a lot of fetch with them, making them jump for frisbees etc).
.
I know *exactly* what it feels like to realize that what we did in the past was not ideal.
It’s a sinking, dreadful sense of having messed up with no possibility to go back and have a do-over.
.
It was not my intention to give anyone that feeling, but now I see how it turned out that way.
And I just want to say:
.
We have all been there. (I sure have been there!)
In fact, I am pretty certain that there will be *many* future occasions at which I’ll realize I should have done something completely different.
Both in dog training and in other aspects of life!
.
I know that everyone reading this had the best intentions if they were over-exercising their puppy.
If that is you: You did the best with the knowledge you had.
Now that knowledge might be different but that doesn’t change that you were doing the best you could.
.
I know it is easier said than done but please don’t beat yourself up about doing things “wrong” in the past.
I have so many reactivity students who regret punishing their dog for reactive responses … so many puppy owners who regret not approaching socialization differently … so many owners of resource guarding dogs who regret how they tried to teach their dog to give up items.
.
Again: Yes, they maybe didn’t objectively do the “best” thing.
But they all did the best with what they knew at the time! They all tried hard and they all wanted the best for their dogs.
That counts for so much.
.
I am convinced that in 10 years I will look back at some things I do today and think “ah yes, well I didn’t know better!”.
(In fact, it would be pretty sad if that wasn’t the case and I wouldn’t learn anything new in the next decade.)
.
Everyone makes mistakes with their first dog. And their second dog. And probably every dog they’ll have.
First dogs get the most mistakes - every future dog benefits from everything our past dogs have taught us.
.
Please don’t beat yourself up about those mistakes.
They were all part of the journey and part of who you are today!
.
You did the best with what you knew and that counts for a lot.

Couldn't defend her best trick from last year, despite having far more in her toolbox than the winner 🤣 ...had lots of fun on the scurries as it is not often that we have someone else to throw the dummies

Dogs and testosterone ...kind of like a teenager when their voice is breaking...one minute they are booming like billy big balls, next minute they are squeaking like a mouse

The growl is a gift …. I bet that sounds strange, but it really is.

Check out this infographic from Dogs Disclosed to find out why.

“Today I adopted a human. It broke my heart to see him so lonely and confused. And suddenly I got his teary eyes to meet mine. I don't like the smell of sad. I wanted to jump on him so bad. He spoke to me with cuteness and I knew it, I had to rescue him!, that human needed me. So I bark with all my strength, I followed him blocks and blocks.
I got close, I could smell his hands. The human smiled for an instant and when he took me in his arms, I started to feel his ice cream heart warmed. I approached his cheeks and felt a tear roll on them. I looked at him deeply and his response was a brilliant smile. I jumped excited into his arms, I promised to behave, love him forever and never part with his side.
How lucky he was to go through that block, down that street and I feel lucky too.
There were so many people walking around and no one was looking at me. All worried, all in their troubles. Glad no one else chose me Today I saved a life. Today I adopted a human” 🐾 🐕

I can't take him to the beach for a walk because it annoys you and disturbs the vacation... I have no right to rent a house if I have a dog, nor can I take him on public transportation.
However, I can take it to the rubble to find you after an earthquake, in the woods after you got lost in the mountains and had no map or gps; under the snow because you took a detour forbidden off the track; in the water because despite the red flag you have entered the sea, and your life is in danger!
And finally ...
He is just a dog, but he or she will find you. And it will save you!!!
Dedicated to all who DO NOT love dogs!
