    Learning Life Lessons About Relationships With Your Pet (EXPERT)

    in Pets

    Learning Life Lessons With Your Pet  © Judy Helm Wright wwww.AnimalHumanConnection.com


    Our family used to think we needed to focus on teaching and training our pets. Actually, it was the other way around.  While we were concerned that they know about  “sit” “shake hands” and “fetch” they already knew all the important stuff in life like loyalty, kindness and love. We were blessed with the animal wisdom they shared with us


    This week we will focus on relationships:



    Protect your loved ones
    Be loyal to your pack members
    After a conflict, shake it off and let it go
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it in a mean way
    Sometimes the best idea when it gets stressful is to close your eyes and ignore it
    Love unconditionally without expecting anything in return
    Don’t keep score of who does what for whom. You make the first move
    Be open to being loved & accepted. Why wouldn’t someone like you?
    Enjoy compliments and pats on the back
    Greet your family with the same excitement I greet you.
    Watch for non-verbal cues to gauge the character of visitors
    If someone is mean to animals, they are not worth associating with
    Understand the true value of a good friend. Friendship is the basis for all relationships
    When someone is having a bad day, just sit close by quietly and listen
    Be kind to those who may never have a treat for you
    Never, ever lie or be unfaithful to those who love and trust you
