5. Best company is animal company.
I get to talk to animals. My dream after I saw Dr Doolittle as a kid. Truly training is listening and hearing. The more we do it, the more we fine tune our ability to hear them.
I learn about my ego and that it does not work to use it to train for the long-term. Relationships are built when we hear our stories and then discard them. Then just be in the moment. The moments is where the good stuff happens.
The more I learn about animal behaviour the more I realise I don't know. I find the lessons sooooo exciting.
Top reason. The total honesty of the interaction with an animal. They are pure beings. No hidden agendas.
Thank God for animals!
