The very core of Mindful Training is to see yourself in your dog. If you see your dog as part of yourself, you would never cause harm to them. You would do your best to support them.

If you see your dog as part of yourself, you can also see a restaurant waiter or gas station clerk as part of yourself too. Continuing this practice of Indiscriminate Inclusion (extending what you consider as yourself to include all of existence) you would not cause harm, steal, or act aggressively towards anyone. 

Our wish is for all pet parents to see themselves in their pets, so they can be more compassionate and accepting of all lives that share the collective experience.
