When I wrote about the ways my dogs have helped me connect with other pet lovers , it made me think about how many experiences in my life that I have my pets to thank for.
The first time I drove a car by myself was to go to a pet first aid class at a local community college. The first time I used a power tool was to attach jump cup strips to my agility jumps. And the first time I finished an official race, I had Nemo to thank for running every step of the way with me. Sense a trend?
My dogs have inspired me to learn new things and embark on adventures that enrich our lives together. Studies have shown that dog lovers are more active than the average person , but I think that our relationship with our pups extends beyond increased physical activity. My dogs give me unconditional love and I want to be the best person I can be for them.
Does your dog inspire you to learn new skills or test the limits of your abilities?
