Turns out their destructive behavior was due to boredom, which is no surprise. But Cimbulis gave some more insight into their behavior: "They're bright, like little light bulbs; they've got way too much spirit and they know how to charm you and your wife." I know all about too much spirit--I was looking for my forver home for a long time before I found a human that could handle all of my spirit. My human is not a dog communication specialist, but she did jsut what Cimbulis recommended to Levy: provide structure and channel my energy into healthy outlets.
This isn't rocket science to us dogs, but some humans need a little help figuring it out. As Cimbulis says, "We're focusing on the animals, but we're really training the humans."Has you human ever enlisted the help of a communication specialist to understand you? Did it help? Tell me about it!
