Three-year-old Peyton Smith of Norwalk, Ohio got mad at his sister and struck her. Jillian, his mother, saw what happened and told him that it was not acceptable behavior. The boy ended up having a time-out.
Peyton's dog, Dash, sat beside him and stayed with him the whole time. He seemed to care about Peyton and wanted to help him feel better. Jillian was able to snap a quick picture on her phone as the touching moment unfolded.
She posted the picture online, and it quickly went viral. People from all over the world shared their positive thoughts about the photo. Dogs are great companions, friends, and protectors.
They are adorable and they do not get messy like cats or other pets. Dogs love kids and will stick with them for as long as they need comfort. While kids love dogs because they are fun to play with and they are very friendly too.
Dogs can also read human emotions. They know when their owners are anxious or happy and will try to comfort them if they are upset. They can also be therapy dogs in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, and other institutions.
Therapy dogs help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression among patients. Dogs are also obedient and loyal, so they can be an excellent companion for people with disabilities who may not have enough mobility or strength to walk or stand up without assistance from others. Dogs can also learn a variety of tricks, such as how to walk, sit, and stay.
But training a dog isn't easy, and it's not something you can do in a day or over the weekend. It takes plenty of patience and it will take several weeks for you to notice changes. Training can also help you understand your dog's behavior and figure out what makes him tick.
This will help you avoid any mishaps in the future.
