Have you ever wondered why people say that a dog is “man’s best friend?”
Discuss: What is it about dogs that make them so lovable?
The next time that you are around a dog, pay attention to what the dog does to make friends. Here are a few things that I have noticed dogs do to make friends:
- Dogs are always excited to see everyone!
- Dogs aren’t judgmental and are willing to love anyone.
- Dogs constantly show affection and silently show that they care for you.
- Dogs like to play and have fun.
Discuss: Are there any other things that dogs do to make friends?
If you want to make friends and get to know people, treat them like a dog would! Be excited to see them, don’t be judgmental, love everyone, let people know that you care for them, and always try to have fun! If you follow that formula then you are guaranteed to always be making friends.
Discuss: Of course, we don’t look to dogs to be our role models in everything. What are some things that some dogs do that as people we probably shouldn’t?
