When the Going Gets Ruff

A little “ruff” for the rough times

Life can get tough, and it can be handled in two different ways. Firstly, you can allow the things around you to influence how you feel. And secondly, you can choose how you’re going to feel own your own. If this is the case, why not choose to be happy?

We struggle with this concept sometimes, as the outside world always seems to have some sort of impact on how we act. All the same, we must push forward in our choice to be happy, knowing that we will feel down at times, no matter what.

Apart from man, what other creature seems to understand this concept more than his best friend? The dog.

Have you ever noticed how happy our canine companions seem to be, especially so when they are in our company? To them, life is often just a game. Where is the next fun thing?

The truth about having a good time

Of course, we know that life can’t always be fun and games. However, if you’re not having fun (or plainly, not enjoying yourself), why bother with life at all? Here is the answer: Life is what you make of it. So make the most of it. Begin now. Drop the negativity, and become inspired to have fun. You owe it to yourself!

A great way you can find your happiness is through the company of positive things that focus on having fun. This not only applies to people, but to dogs as well. Why not start with someone who likes to have a good time? Have you looked into getting a dog? Maybe you already have one. Whatever the case, you can start having some fun sooner rather than later.

A great way to enjoy time with your current or future dog is through agility training. Through agility training, owner and dog can take pleasure in an experience that is bonding, exciting, and riveting.

Look at all the options!

There is a variety of types of agility training for you and your dog to experiment with. There are Frisbees, tunnels, jumps, and more for you to choose from. All of these are healthy forms of exercise for you and your dog and are a great way to have fun with it. You can make it a career or a hobby, but either way, you are getting out there and enjoying yourself with that carefree companion. It’s all a choice.

It is important to remember that agility training requires a lot of patience on your end, especially when your dog is so focused on having fun. If you are more focused on looking for a good time, just throw the Frisbee around and have a good time. Unless you plan on making a career out of agility training, you should not feel any pressure. Its main purpose was intended to be a good time. That’s how it all started before there were shows and competitions: a person, a dog, and a stick.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and focus on enjoying your time with your dog without the burden of pressures and deadlines. If agility training doesn’t do it for you, still get out and make time for yourself to enjoy the little things, as they are often the most important for contentment. Go out with some friends, take a jog, listen to some music, see a movie, you name it.

Just remember that the only thing you have to do in this life is being happy with yourself. Without this trait, your ability to take care of your perhaps not so fun responsibilities will become that much harder. A smile and a little pep in your step can take you a long way in this life.
