I love my Kindle. One thing that our experience losing Blue reminded me is that the human-canine bond is a tangible thing that all dog lovers know about and can appreciate. Losing Blue felt like a shot in the heart with a canon. His absence is visible in our life every day. This made me even more interested in the human-canine bond, a dog’s role in our lives, and sharing our life with others so that each person I touch has a reminder that dogs are precious.
A local dog trainer, Dianna Young, wrote a book with Robert Mottram called THINK like your DOG – And Enjoy the Rewards and it’s amazing. I just started it and I love every minute of it and it’s making me excited about adding a new dog to our family. So far, I understand why Blue used to bark at cyclists and why he got hit by a car. I understand our pack dynamic more and why our dogs listen to Johan 100% of the and listen to me about 90-95% of the time. I understand why Rodrigo is so hesitant in one area of our garage and why he didn’t like the new doggy door at first. And I understand more about how dogs communicate, which is way different than what I thought and will serve to help me raise them.
This book is AMAZING. I’ll be writing a lot of upcoming posts based on what I’m learning from THINK like your DOG.
I’m a big time reader and this and a few books I found browsing on Amazon have made it to my reading list. My goal is to become a better dog mom and dog owner and I’m excited to share these with you.
