Dogs and kids, they are more alike then you’d think. However are dogs more complicated than kids??
If a dog gets in a fight at doggy day care you can’t sit down and talk to them about why it happened or how they might change their choices next time. We can’t ask them to apologize to the dog or talk to their parents and reconcile the issue.
If dogs grew up in a bad home and then you “rescue” them you don’t get to talk about their past and figure out what happened and the triggers you need to avoid.
Are dogs more complicated than kids?
Maybe. Maybe I’m just seeing one perspective.
