“In agility training you’ll hear this a lot… that if you don’t have a perfect run, it’s your fault, not your dogs. I’m all for adjusting this way of thinking. Agility is teamwork, and a dog is a living creature with it’s own mysteries and mischievousness. It is also a journey of learning how to read each other’s communication styles. Some dogs will never overcome certain weaknesses and unless you are a dog mind reader, we need to learn to manage their weaknesses, even as we need to acknowledge and manage our own.”
For everyone who isn’t perfect who has a dog who isn’t perfect, here is a beautiful tribute called “The Journey” by Susan Garrett of www.clickerdogs.com that will be sure to bless your heart today.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
