It strikes me as incredible what lengths people will go through to accomodate their dogs. We all love dogs, and want what's best for them...but when does this 'love' go too far?
Take the case of the family that has to suit up in hockey gear to put their dog to bed...I am not exaggerating...they literally suit up in body armour so that they can close the door on their dog's crate! Is this necessary? Is there another way? What are we willing to do or better yet, to learn, to be able to deal with these situations?
We are the smarter of the species. If we are donning hockey gear to safely live with our dog, there may be a problem. Communication between dogs and humans can break down very quickly...it is very understandable and very treatable.
If you think that your relationship with your dog could improve, consider calling in a dog communication expert who can help bridge the gap and have you removing the gloves for a hug...instead of a fight.
