We humans are verbal beings, who with our spoken words can cover up our real emotions and mask our body language. Animals can’t do that. They behave exactly how they feel. Our pets do not understand our human speech, but they do understand our body language. That is why it is said that they see us truly as we are, they see our soul. That is why we have a huge obligation to be as good as we can towards them, and also towards ourselves.
We need to understand them, we need to help them live in our human world, we need to be their positive leaders and teachers. The owner-pet relationship is a product of mutual cooperation, proper communication and upbringing. Understanding the nature of the animal, its emotions and needs is the basis for initial education and training.
My idea has always been to educate as many people around me as possible about what it really means to own a pet, to teach them to look at things from a different angle, from an animal perspective, because that is the only way we can get an objective picture of both problems and solutions.
