There’s no shame in admitting we might not be the best at everything. Whenever I see a dog displaying a desirable behaviour I watch her interaction with the owner. I do ask questions, too, but watching works better as people often can’t pinpoint precisely what they do that is right. In the same way as they can’t pinpoint what they do wrong.
The process of learning never ends. But it starts with admitting we don’t know everything.
No two dogs are the same, I learn something new from each of them. I also learn from everyone I meet, sometimes by simply noticing their mistakes and not repeating them.
There’s a saying I like: ‘if you think you’re the smartest person in the room, it’s time to change rooms’.
