It's pretty simple, really


Dogs go over fences. You must choose a bigger, better fence.
Dogs dig up gardens. You must enclose your beautiful plants so your dog cannot get to them.
Dogs bark if they are alone all day. You must hire a dog walker or change your schedule.
Dogs chew items you would prefer they not. You must place such items out of reach.
Dogs pull while on leash. You must teach them that being beside you is a very good thing.


Remember that you chose to bring another species into your home.
Remember that you have the bigger brain.
Remember that you are obligated to treat this creature with kindness and respect.
Remember that you are your dog's protector and advocate.
Remember that your dog feels pain and fear, just like you do.


  1. Dogs need to be dogs
    Choose a way for the to be dogs!
    Just a thought.
