Just about now, most likely the thought has crossed your mind, ” What the hell was I thinking about, getting a puppy”. This friggin animal, doesn’t listen for beans. I did all the dam breed research, responsive, intelligent, loving, brave, companionable, lively, alert, friendly, affectionate, bold, docile, loyal, good natured, obedient, determined. About the only thing this stupid dog is determined to do, is put me in the crazy house.
If you have one of these, “Stupid Dogs” I would suggest that you start thinking in more simple terms, when trying to communicate with or solve some of your dog problems. We for some reason like to over think everything, by over thinking the simplest of matters, we often exasperate the problem. You know, make it like a million times worse.
Your dogs mind, is like a one year old child’s mind that never developed, we commonly call that in today’s politically correct society as, “Mentally Challenged or Handicapped”. With a human that has learning disabilities, how well we can communicate with them depends on two things. ( 1 ) The severity of the handicap. And ( 2 ) Our ability to understand and teach individuals with vastly different, “Intelligent Reasoning” capabilities as our own.
To take it a step further on our dogs mental capacity, or lack of. Stop what your doing right now, and take a look around your room. What do you notice ? If you are not over thinking what I am asking you to do, you will have noticed all the things you have in your home or office. Everything you see and everything you have or ever will have, has been conceived, invented and designed by the human mind. In comparison what has your dog made, besides that big pile of shit in the corner over there.
Our dog can only think like a dog.
The more intelligent of us out there, will bear this in mind when dealing with our dogs issues. For all others that continually think that your dog can understand you past their intelligent level. Your really not helping your dog or yourself, when the inevitable behavior issues arise.
