It’s no secret that dog is man’s best friend, but at ZenCrate we love the idea that really all the important things in life can be picked up from a few easy lessons from your canine companion. They appreciate the small stuff, provide unconditional love, and delight in the simple pleasures that money can’t buy. Here are a few of our favorite lessons that you too can learn from your dog.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
Put down your windows and crank up the tunes, there are very few things that a long drive and some wind in your face can’t fix.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
We think this translates to, no matter what went on in our day, appreciate the people around you, and if you love them…say it!
Run, romp, and play daily.
Get away from the screen—whether it’s the phone, computer, or TV. Get outside and bask in the sunshine.
Perhaps the best lesson we can all learn.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
In work, love, or play—don’t give up. Your prize might just be at the end of some hard work.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Sometimes just being there is more powerful than anything you can ever say.
No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout - run right back and make friends.
Let things go and don’t hold grudges, life is too short to miss out on having fun.
Bond with your pack.
Find your people and stick with them. And at the risk of two clichés in one sentence, always remember that your vibe attracts your tribe.
When you're excited, speak up.
Don’t let the moment pass, take every opportunity to spread positivity and encouragement.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Long walks may be the solution to all the world’s problems.
