    I agree, dogs have very similar emotions and emotional responses to stimuli as humans do. We care about the same things socially and personally. The difference in communicative efforts being mislabeled (and sometimes vilified) paired with the human ego create a handicap in cohesive existence. People tend to vilify and dumb down what they don’t understand. Creating relatable analogies for clients is helpful for some, but some people are results oriented rather than experience oriented and that can cause problems in all sorts of relationships. Anthropomorphism is a helpful and ethnologically correct tool (I find) for creating empathetic and compassionate training plans. I like your explanation here @Art
