For his first column of 2012, Eric Brad challenges his listeners to question what they think they know about dogs. As the Greek philosopher Aristotle once said, “The high-minded man must care more for the truth than for what people believe.” Our best source of information about dogs is the dogs themselves! Perhaps it’s time to ask them and see what they say.
With all of the methods and information out there, this is a great time to try something new and learn something about our dogs. Our dogs are wonderfully adaptable if we give them a chance. There’s not harm in trying something we’ve never tried and it may work better than what we have been using! Question everything and be prepared for some surprising answers.
A transcript of the main text of For the Dogs: New Year, New Challenges is available at the Life As A Human online magazine website. You can visit Life as a Human to find this and other articles.
