Observing Dog Personality

Observing dog personality and behavior can  give us  invaluable insights into animal and human behavior.  

 

Therapy Dogs

Why are dogs so therapeutic for people?

Dog personality,

by their very nature, are therapeutic for people who love them even if they are not officially trained as therapy dogs.

  • Psychologist Carl Rogers believed that three of the most important qualities a therapist can have are congruence, empathy, and unconditional positive regard. Dogs seem to naturally excel in all these qualities.

Congruence means

  • being yourself. No lies or phoniness. In our modern , complicated world, this is a wonderful quality that dogs definitely embody.
  • Dogs are themselves for better or for worse - no deceptions. 

Another words we can  learn much from Dog personalities

  • We Humans have to make this so complicated. 

First we have to learn who we are  and who we want to be before we can become our  themselves. Just be more like your dog !

Your dogs accept you for who you are

From goodtheropy.org-

  • Self-actualization is the final stage of development in Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. This stage occurs when a person is able to take full advantage of his or her talents while still being mindful of his or her limitations. The term is also used colloquially to refer to an enlightened maturity characterized by the achievement of goals, acceptance of oneself, and an ability to self-assess in a realistic and positive way.

Empathy

Dogs are very attuned to their humans and respond to them immediately and naturally. In general, if you are happy so is your dog. If you are upset or angry your dog knows and may run for cover or hang their head.


Unconditional positive regard

Your dog loves you no matter what, with no strings attached.

Mutual love between dogs and people exist because  dog and human personalities are so alike.  

But humans need to adapt more unconditional love  aspects of their dogs personalities.

If we all embodied and practiced these qualities that come so naturally to dogs our lives and the world we live in would be dramatically improved.


The Dogs knows who they are
verses
humans need to find out who they are

Cat Stevens -

"If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out"

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
'Cause there's a million things to be
You know that there are

And if you want to live high, live high
And if you want to live low, live low
'Cause there's a million ways to go
You know that there are

[Chorus:]
You can do what you want
The opportunity's on
And if you can find a new way
You can do it today
You can make it all true
And you can make it undo
you see ah ah ah
its easy ah ah ah
You only need to know

Well if you want to say yes, say yes
And if you want to say no, say no
'Cause there's a million ways to go
You know that there are

And if you want to be me, be me
And if you want to be you, be you
'Cause there's a million things to do
You know that there are

[Chorus]

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
'Cause there's a million things to be
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
