Just to give a little perspective.
Walk a mile inside your yard.
Then go take a mile walk, at someplace new and different. Which brought you more joy, and which was just mindless exercise?
How happy would you be, just walking in circles around your yard everyday? Would you long for something more, and become frustrated?
While I do not think dogs are people.
It's just a easier way to explain their needs, when we compare them to us.
Smart athletic dog breeds, are a huge commitment. Not understanding their mental/ physical needs leads to destructive behavioral problems.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
I have dogs that need to go for a run.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
