You Owe This to Your Dog…

on December 8, 2011

I cannot take credit for this.

I read it in The Dog Tricks and Training Workbook by Kyra Sundance & I liked it so much, I thought I’d reproduce it here.

You owe this to your dog….

  • Adequate food and medical care
  • A life that is beyond mere survival
  • Grooming, ear and teeth cleaning, nail trimming, skin and coat conditioning
  • Exercise-not only the option for exercise, but also the encouragement
  • Twenty minutes each day of your undivided attention
  • Three enrichment activities per day (a walk, a game of fetch, a training session, a car ride)
  • Exposure to a world beyond your backyard
  • Socialisation with people and dogs outside of your family
  • The right to give and receive unconditional love
  • Training, so your dog does not become a prisoner of his own misbehaviour
  • Fresh air and green grass
  • Respect for your dog’s needs needs and wants
  • Responsible breeding, or none at all
  • Time and space all his own
  • The freedom to be foolish and silly, and to make you laugh
  • The right to earn your trust and to be trusted in return
  • Forgiveness
  • The right to die with dignity
  • The honor of being remembered well
