ATTITUDE - When they are ready to do what they want to do (walk, run, play) and others aren't, they pout. If the situation isn't remedied to their liking, they deepen the pouting process.
TEAM PLAYER - These territorial creatures are brutally selective who they will even allow in their space. As for actual cooperative interaction, aside from their pet parents and an ally here and there, they don't give a crap, pun intended, about the mission, goal and objectives.
Flexibility - Good luck trying to untrain a trained dog. Recently I adopted Lee K., five years old. He had his routines. I had mine. I had to change mine.
Accepts Criticism - Their total being collapses when anyone ventures a negative word. Should the tone be harsh and the voice volume raised, they may take hours to recover.
Keeps Current with Technology - They have zero interest in digital anything, including the message to buckle their seat belt when they sit in the passenger seat of a car.
Sure, there are exceptions. For example, dogs trained to assist humans with mobility might fill a corporate manager's heart with joy. Or maybe not. You have to ask the experts, such as my college classmate Dr. Kathleen Huebner, about that one.
