Something a little different

I am always telling you all about my dogs; how cute, how good, different behaviors and basically why they are the best dogs in the world.  Today I'd like to try something different; I'd like to hear from you all.  Now I know if I just say "tell me about your great dogs," I'll get more than I bargain for.  We all think our dogs are the best in the world right?  Just as it should be.  So..................what I'd like to know is; what is the one most important lesson that your dog or dogs have taught you?

After all the comments, and hopefully I'll get some comments, I will add mine.  I can't wait to read this.


  1. Learning to speak dog or at least to try and understand them, rather than bend them to humans.

  2. Hi Sherri
    I have 6 dogs, {German Shorthaired pointer/lab. 2 Siberian husky, Irish setter and 2 Keeshond}
    The most important lesson for me from my dogs is patience.
    When you take the time you can do anything with your dogs. Dogs are very smart.
    I can take 5 dogs for a walk at the same time. I can take them biking riding 2 or 3 at a time.
    When we feed them, the dogs has to sit in there’s place and stay. My 6th dog is a S Husky puppy.
    She is 10 weeks old. She is already housetrain, my pack taught her.
    When I take the 5 for a walk, I talk to them. They now know they right and Left.
    When I turn the corner I will say right and they will turn right or I will say left they will turn left.
    This is good when I am biking with them. My bike will not hit them when I turn the corner.
    They all get along. I am very lucky I have no dog fight. When I add the puppy two weeks ago.
    My pack did not care. They just look at her and walk away. Today my pack is playing with her.
    She is part of the pack. It’s like she belongs with us.
    Yes I do have some problem with some of my dogs. My Irish setter is a barker and we are working
    with him. He is 4 years old and he been with us for 2 years. Cheyenne my 2 year old Keeshond
    think’s she is the boss. It takes time to fix the problems, but with work and patience and a lot of love
    my dog problem will go away. We have lots of love in the house. The dogs bring us joy and keeps up

  3. Basically what makes all dogs great is the idea that they know so well how to "live in the moment", "in the now".... let all the stress and pressure of the day just roll right off of you. There are so many self help books about leaving work at the office and destressing... sincerely, dogs do that for anyone that's willing to take the time and listen to what they're saying. For me, my dog makes me laugh out loud. He's a bit of a comedian - carries multiple tennis balls to anyone paying attention, runs to the nearest sprinkler system to play in the water, and dances with excitement to show how happy he is that I'm home - it never fails to bring a smile to my face.

  4. When I was a child, our dogs taught me dog manners (no grabbing, no picking them up if they don't want to, no dressing them up for tea parties...). My current Spoo boy has reminded me of the value of laughter & joy. For the last 2 years, I've been on a monster work project - long hours and lots of stress. Finn knows just how to make me smile and put things in their proper perspective with his goofy, loving nature and basic joie de vive.

  5. Unconditional Love. No matter what my Bekka is always happy to see me.

  6. Unconditional Love. No matter what my Bella is always happy to see me.


Love to hear from you.
