I found this clip of Sesame Street on YouTube where Maria finds herself stuck in a world of dogs. I think it’s quite poignant. Sometimes you have to stop and think about how our dogs see the world. It can be quite the confusing place. Dogs are not humans and humans are not dogs. We need to make a concerted effort to develop a shared vocabulary with our dogs. Otherwise, we risk labeling our confused dogs as “defiant” and “spiteful” when really they just have no idea what it is that we want.
