Hey everyone, this is my very first blog post, so bare with me.
I was having a conversation with a friend today and we started talking about moving to a new house and how the dogs react to it. During this conversation, I started to think about my own dogs who have been through several moves and another one just a few weeks ago into our current home.
You see, I hadn’t thought about it because to me it wasn't an issue. Our dogs have no choice but to go where we go. This made me think about the mindset I have as opposed to others who coddle their dogs with soft weak energy:
“How are the dog’s taking the move?”
“How are they adjusting?”
My dogs have to be fine here because this is where we live now. We do all the same things we did before, it is just in a new area. If I was to act in a way that was not confident--of course--the dogs would have a hard time because I told them to have a hard time by thinking about “how are they adjusting” and “will they be ok.” The fact is, the dog will be ok if that's what you're thinking.
Our dogs know what we're feeling and if we're putting out soft leadership then they will react accordingly.
