Love Your “Difficult” Dog

 

 

Now Suki is a very sweet, loving, and well-behaved dog….except when meeting other dogs while on a leash.  She barks, lunges, completely ignores me, and tries us both crazy!  I’m guilty of  focusing on the difficulty of her dog reactivity and forgetting that it’s only one small negative in her otherwise wonderful personality.  Sometimes it’s hard to remember the forest through the trees.  I was reminded of this today when I came across a great article on Dogster.com about why an owner loves her difficult dog.  The article made me realize that Suki isn’t her faults…it’s just one facet of her.  There’s so much to love about her, and I need to focus more on that.  For the full Dogster.com article, click here. It’s definitely worth a read for us “difficult” dog owners.
