After a long training session yesterday, Ranger was worn out and didn’t feel like playing with the boy for very long. The kiddo was a bit sad. Luckily, with creativity, you can create win/win situations with kids and friendly dogs who are having introvert moments. I asked my son if he would like to read Ranger his reading lesson book, and it was just the right answer.
This is a great way to integrate canine and human family members that doesn’t require unwanted attention being pressed on an already tired dog. Look for solutions that meet everyone’s needs when possible, but of course safety always wins if push must come to shove.
