Enough to melt any heart
The dog in this video is so well trained. This is one of the cutest things I have ever seen. You have to see how patiently he waits for his owner to let him eventually have the treat. But it is not just his patience that will melt your heart.
I am sure other dog owners agree, dogs can just melt your heart by simple gestures or interactions. I believe that is why dogs are used for therapy like dementia, depression, anxiety, Alzheimer’s, and more. They can help heal humans in several ways.
Have you ever had a tough workday and you come home from work feeling like you just are stressed right out? Your mind is racing and on autopilot, going over the events of the day that seemed to all go wrong? The minute you enter your house, walking in the door to your dog who loves you and is so over the top excited to see you, it brings you back to the moment. The worries of the day seem to slip away, even if just for a little while. They help improve our mood instantly, it seems.
When you see this video, if you are not already a pooch owner, you likely will be getting one soon. The look on this dog’s face is so incredibly cute.
And of course, there are many pros to having a dog. As you may already have heard, having a dog can help with health issues partly because of the energy they bring to your life. But there are also side benefits because you will need to get out to walk your dog, which is great for them and for you. A healthier lifestyle is an added benefit for sure.
Not to mention the connection between children and their dog. Kids often find that the dog is like their best friend too. They also benefit from having that warm fuzzy feeling when they get home from school, and the dog is overjoyed to see them. It can help them cope better with situations that may feel stressful at school and in life.
Dogs are also very intuitive. If something seems amiss, likely your dog will give you signs before you even realize something might be wrong. I have heard so many stories about their family dog saving a child or barking profusely when something is wrong. They are so smart.
There is something about dogs that get to a person’s heart like no other.
The intelligence of this beagle to know where the treat is and exactly what his owner is saying to “leave it” is just another reminder of how amazing dogs are.
So if you are still considered whether to introduce a dog into your life, you are sure to be getting one after you watch this video.
