There are so many factors that influence how we think, feel and respond from past experiences to expectations, our peers and our communities. Sometimes these things can also affect our relationships with our dogs.

However, there are ways we can minimize the negative effects of the bad times to help us achieve a better, more fulfilling life for ourselves and our dogs.
