I try to treat everyone and my pets the way I would want to be treated, the golden rule. Does it happen 100% of the time, no, but I strive for it. My kids are 24 (twins), never got in trouble at school, no drugs, DUIs, they manage their money well, what little they have of it,we are friends. My neighbors are amazed at how much my pets love me and respond to me.
Have you ever hit or yelled at your dog?
