We’ve all seen the look on our dog’s faces when we get their lead ready, or witnessed their tails wagging ten to the dozen when we come home. If you want to be as happy as your dog, here are their secrets…
Dogs live in the moment
While humans have a bad habit of thinking too much about the past or worrying about the future, dogs seem to have an almost magical ability to live solely in the moment, whether it’s a walk, a meal or a game.
Dogs enjoy every little thing
Playing with their toys, cuddling you, going for walks, playing tug… The things that make a dog happy are simple, everyday things and they enjoy them to the full, whereas we can be a bit guilty of only looking out for the big things.
Dogs find forgiving easy
Dogs also don’t waste time holding grudges – if you upset them yesterday by giving them two treats instead of the twenty they wanted, you’ll be forgiven today.
Dogs give and receive unwavering love
The masters of devotion and loyalty themselves, the luckiest dogs also have the unwavering love of their owners in return. Imagine being looked after 100% by someone as devoted to you as you are to your pet! No doubt everyone who comes to visit makes a fuss over them too!
So maybe your dog has some tricks to teach you too. Live in the moment, try not to worry, spend time with those you love and notice the small joys every day.
