Short story: . . I trained a dog for a client…

Short story:
.
.

I trained a dog for a client, his dog didn’t respect him too much. I wrote it off as such. One day he went to correct him and his dog growled at him. I made the owner correct the dog and put him on a down command for a long down.
.
.

Minutes later my clients daughter came into the garage to see what we were doing, he yelled at her to go back into the house. The dog got up and went in between the child and my client. As he went to grab the dog to place him back on his down command the dog allowed him to correct him but when he yelled again at the little girl the dog got up and did the same thing.
.
.

At this point I knew something was up with his dog. I told him to correct the dog again and “loudly tell his daughter to go in the house again” the dog once again stood between the child and the owner.
.
.

That’s when I realized that the problem with the dog was the owner and his anger. The dog didn’t like the way he spoke to the children. My client and I had talks about kids and life in every lesson afterwards until he got the lesson that it wasn’t the boy his dog that needed training, it was the owner himself who needed to change.
.
.

Moral of the story, the dog taught this gentlemen about himself, his anger issues and the way he spoke to people rather than the training this dog was getting. Dogs truly know how people are and only if we pay attention to them more, we can learn a thing or two about ourselves.
