Have you ever noticed that life’s inconveniences rarely happen at convenient times?
My schedule can get pretty tight and though I like to think I’m a flexible person, sometimes the curve balls that life throws at me can have me scrambling to rearrange my schedule.
Let me tell you about one of those times this week.
The other evening, I was about to head to bed after a long day when my son hobbled in the front door and collapsed on the sofa.
His ankle was swelling rapidly.
He had hurt himself playing basketball.
The last thing I had time in my schedule for was a trip to urgent care, but as the night got later it was pretty obvious that an urgent care trip was necessary.
The next day, I felt like I was moving pieces on a sliding puzzle when I was rearranging my schedule.
Thankfully, my son only has a bad sprain, but he’s still on crutches and in a brace for the next couple of weeks.
There are times in life that things are going to happen and there’s going to be nothing you can do about it.
You will have to rearrange your schedule and make the best of the situation.
It’s pretty much guaranteed that your life will have a lot of those moments if you have children and/ or dogs.
But there are definitely things that you can do to lessen or prevent some of life’s inconveniences.
Something we tell our clients often is that they should never wait to train something when they need it done.
It’s always best to train a behavior when it doesn’t matter.
Teach the dog, over and over, in places and times when you don’t need a behavior, so the dog knows the behavior when you do need it.
Does your dog bolt out the door when you are ready to leave for work?
Jump on company?
Bark at other dogs?
Refuse to come when called?
Those aren’t the times to train your dog.
The training needs to happen outside of those times.
