Decision-making Is Stressing Out Your Dog! The people at the top of any organization deal with the most stress. Why? Because they have the most responsibility and have to make the most decisions.
And those difficult decisions impact a variety of things including people’s lives. That’s stressful. Now imagine being at the top of an organization that you don’t understand and no one trained/taught you and every time you make a bad decision you get punished. Welcome to your dog’s life. Freedom of choice does not equate to happiness. It equates to more decisions, thus more stress. More shoes? More cars? More bedrooms? More social events? More happiness? I don’t think so. Hollywood has proven that. Most of our happiness comes from very simple and basic things. Food. Water. Clothing. Shelter. Family.
Order. Safety. Freedom of thought and expression. Freedom to pursue fulfillment. Friends. Work. Accomplishment. Being understood. Being loved. Everything else is bullsh*t. Dogs are no different.
They’d rather live in a safe, peaceful, guided world with order and harmony. Quit stressing your dog out by giving them the world. It’s overwhelming to them. Eliminate decision making by guiding them. But be a fair leader. Be sure their needs are in mind and not your own. They will love you for it. ❤️
