What do you see? Is it a horse, donkey, zebra, mule?🐴
Does it matter?
When we look at dogs🐶, it is our human nature to compartmentalize that the dog is aggressive🐯, fearful👻, happy😁,confident👌, underweight, overweight, .. womboling free..etc
Whilst this is useful at times, it shouldn’t be our response to the behaviour the dog is displaying at that time 👌
We all have off days, we all have off moments and so will your dog.📆
If an aggressive behaviour is sudden this could be caused by pain for example but it doesn’t mean that the dog is ‘aggressive’.
Let’s take today to study your dog. 🐕❤️🐕
