Being a “Human Person” as well as a “Dog Person”

This excellent article by “The Collared Scholar” reminds us all to remember to connect with the people we work with as well as their dogs.  Most of us started out with dogs because we love them and feel attached to them, or even feel we understand them better than humans.

However, if we are working to share our love of dogs and their behavior with other people, we must do so in a people-friendly manner.  We must remember that the large, pink beings on the far end of the leash are interesting, unique individuals, too — they require the same attention and love as the warm, furry things on the other end.
