Audio edition of the article Getting The Dog You Deserve from the Life As A Human online magazine website. You can visit Life as a Human to find this and other articles.
Dogs are, in many ways, a reflection of their owner. They live with us and they learn from us. Sometimes they learn a little more than we would like about us. They can use what they learn to get what they want from us. If our dogs are always learning, are we always teaching? If we're not teaching, what are they learning? We all do our best and in the end, we all get the dog we deserve.
