Dogs and humans have been close ever since dogs were first domesticated. Ties developed between them, with humans providing food and warmth, and dogs helping in guarding the home and protecting the flocks. The rich relationship between humans and dogs must be based on applying some basic observations. All relationships are built on communication between the two parties involved. By getting to know his dog, an owner can come to understand all his perceptible signals (postures, sounds). It is through these signals that dogs communicate with people. Learn to know your dog and provide life worth living to your dog.

Things we can learn from dogs
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it is your best interest, practise obedience.
Lets others know when they have invaded your territory.
Take snaps and strecth before rising.
Run, romp and play daily. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you are not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit nearby and nuzzle him or her gently.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
When you are happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you are scolded, dont buy into the guilt thing and pout.
Run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joys of a long walk.
