What are your philosophies?

My philosophy is every dog like humans have their own individual. Respect them for that and be kind. Dogs will realize this and in return respect you and be really happy. Also dogs accept who we are so in return we should accept who they are. Trust me if they are not allowed to be who they are then anybody will miss out. I hate it when people tell me to shut up when I'm jumping around. Not going to disguise myself as a lazy couch potato unenthusiastic person. Same goes for dogs who are also persons. Dog are my friends, they are not property.

I agree to an extent, but I also see dogs like children, there is a time and place for play, but also a time and place for falling in line.

At the end of the day, I decide who sleeps on which pillow, and his is on the floor.

Except the really really annoying ones. I like to chop those ones up and feed them to my cat.

OP, I think I remember you now. Didn't you post a similar thread a few months ago?

Yep. And quite a doozy too.
Cesar millian and dog terms

My philosophy is that kids should... Naah. Never mind. I don't want to start a cyber storm.

I love my dogs dearly, I do everything and anything I can for them. They are NOT however people. They are not wired like us, can't think like us and sure don't act like us(thank heavens). They live in a human-centric world yet by design do not act like humans, so some guidance is needed. Heavy-handed jerking around isn't necessary as dogs are pretty well endowed with social behavioral traits, but a firm hand is needed. The more a dog understands that you(owner) is in charge the better off the dog will be, IMHO.

@bremo

Be open minded being wrong. The majority of humans thought world was flat. Minority knew the world was round. Who was right and who were wrong? Humans aren't dogs don't have the capabilities or intelligence to understand them more like dogs can. Dogs understand themselves and us more than humans do dogs. The more you respect and are kind to who he is the better off dogs will be. Seems kind of selfish phrase and silly "dogs are not humans". So how do you know you are right cause of silly books? You need plenty of personal experiences.
