So, I had a tiny little leak in my basement. A seriously small little leak. So small that I didn't even notice it for a while, or just saw a few drops on the floor with no concern.
Obviously, like any responsible home owner I knew I needed to get this little leak fixed, but it wasn't my priority in my 100 year old Murphy's Law of a house that I purchased.
So I put a bucket under it and left the basement.
A few days later, this bucket was more than half way filled. I was seriously shocked because I had only seen a drop or two come from this pipe!
I swear, I didn't come here to complain about my house's problems, you have to see me in person to get that. 😂
Dogs work the same way as this leaky pipe.
We let little things slide by: the dog on the couch, under our feet when we are cooking, barking or pawing at us when we're eating, pulling us on leash, growling at the neighbor, jumping on guests.
All of these things seem really small when they're separate, but these little allowances truly add up, and that's where we get in trouble.
We're allowing these behaviors, and in turn we are getting dogs that are imbalanced, dogs that have anxiety, or a mindset that is causing behavior issues.
Dogs deserve more than for us to let them struggle, let them be confused, and not help them live up to their potential.
