1. You go to your local animal shelter, JUST TO LOOK.
2. You mosey past cages of canines—Big ones, small ones, puppies.
3. But then one particular pooch starts wagging his tail in your direction. He might stick his paw through an opening in the kennel, or offer your hand a soft lick.
4. Time stops for a moment, and then you realize: YOU’RE IN LOVE.
5. But you decide you need some time to really think about how having a dog would change your life. It’s a big deal!
6. Five minutes seems to be enough. You tell the volunteer you want to adopt, and she says you can pick up the little rascal tomorrow.
7. You go home and type up a list of everything you’ll need: leash, collar, water bowl, food, maybe a toy.
8. You can barely sleep you’re so excited to get your hands on the little guy.
9. You arrive at the shelter right when they open, and there he is—tongue panting, tail wagging—waiting for you.
10. You embrace, his paws wrap gleefully around your neck, and you depart the shelter as owner and dog.
11. You attempt to get him to sit in the passenger seat of the car, but he’s all over the place, clawing at the window, jumping on your lap and scavengering the floor for crumbs.
12. You stop off at the pet store and realize there’s a lot more you need to get: A dog bed, a brush, treats, medication, a harness, special shampoo…the list is endless, but you shell out the cash anyways.
13. When you get home, the new pup immediately relieves himself on the rug. Bad Fido!
14. While you’re cleaning up the mess, he ingests an earring that had fallen behind your dresser.
15. You rush him to the animal hospital, and a few hundred dollars and an hour later, he’s A OK.
16. Exhausted, you settle into bed, creating a cozy nest of pillows and blankets in his crate for him to sleep.
17. But he doesn’t want anything to do with his crate if you’re not in it. Headstrong, you tell yourself you will not let him on the bed.
18. OK, maybe just this once.
19. The next morning you awake to two paws on your face. You glance at the clock, 5:30 am, and try to coax him back to sleep. But he just wants to play!
20. After an hour of restlessness, you both get up and start the day. The first few weeks are tough, with more “accidents” and adjustments for you both. You start to rethink getting a dog.
21. But soon you have a routine going.
22. You even start to teach him tricks!
23. Good boy, Fido!
24. And at the end of the day, he’s always there, wagging his tail and anxiously waiting for you to indulge him in a snuggle and belly rub.
25. Soon enough, you can’t remember how you ever lived without him!
When I caught the frisbee at the park today, my Best Buddy called me a good boy. That was awesome. Tomorrow I’m gonna be a best boy.
What if there were no doors? I could go ANYWHERE. To the dog food store. To the dog park. To the tennis ball store. To the place where all the squirrels live.
Oh, my God. I actually caught my tail. Oh my God. This is great. What do I do with it.
THERE ARE A MILLION TENNIS BALLS HERE. THEY’RE EVERYWHERE. THEY THROW THEMSELVES. AM I IN HEAVEN.
Thank you for walking me, Best Buddy! What’s that, you say? You want to walk for another eight hours? Wonderful!
Wanna go to the park? YES. Wanna go to the park? YES. Wanna go to the park? YES. Wanna go to the park? YES. Wanna go to the park? YES.
Look at all these windows!! I’m going to stick my head out of ALL OF THEM!!
I’m inventing a game called RACE MY BEST BUDDY. You run and run and run until you can’t run anymore. Loser gets his face licked. Winner gets his face licked, too.
Everything squeaks when I chew on it. It’s a miracle.
The park is so beautiful at dusk! Such a colorful sunset! Black…white…gray………little red in there…
I know how to spell “treat.” Best Buddy thinks that when he says “T-R-E-A-T,” I don’t know what he’s talking about. But I do. Boy, do I love treats.
Where do humans come from? Humans are great.
What if the dog park is the real world and everywhere else is just a people park??

In Households with multiple dogs it is extremely important to build proper pack structure to decrease the amount of dog fights over ranking. The dogs that get more "privileges" are going to be known as a higher ranking pack member, for lower ranking dogs this presents a challenge and being that dogs are pack animals they will test the higher ranking dogs if not properly trained. This video is one of many videos we will be releasing about pack structure.
