Five Lessons You Can Learn by Traveling with Your Dog

Life Ball 2010 - Press Conference

They say that dogs are man’s best friend, and in more ways than one, it is the honest truth. Dogs are your pals, companions, confidants and they can also be your traveling partner! Whether you take them on the road with you on a road trip in a car or bus or fly to a destination on a plane with you, you can learn so much while with them.

Here are five lessons you can learn by traveling with your dog:

– Be spontaneous. Not everything has to be planned out. In fact, life tends to throw us curve balls that tend to leave us in chaos and confusion, but spontaneity is something that more people could put into practice.

– Take some breaks. Many of us are workaholics who find it hard to enjoy and just take a breather. Dogs are some of the most relaxed creatures who never seem to panic about anything – well, maybe about missing a treat or two!

– Explore everything thoroughly. Dogs love getting into things and heading places they probably shouldn’t be because they have no business being there. They constantly snoop with the noses around every little nook and cranny. It’s a great thing to learn – doing things we aren’t necessarily supposed to be.

– Don’t take things too seriously. Laughter is the best medicine and sometimes when they are aloof, dogs are actually quite funny! Feel free to let your silly side show. Besides, if you’re on vacation, chances are you will never see these people again.

– Slow down. Most of the time, many of us are in overdrive and don’t take the time to really enjoy things as they are. Dogs are the things of living in a fast-paced environment.
