How to get a massage without even asking
I used to buy into the fact that since humans have opposing thumbs, lack a prehensile tail, and make and use tools that we were somehow superior in intelligence to our pets. Yet the longer I practice and the more I witness, I become more skeptical about how all this works. I have been watching dogs outsmart their owners since I began practicing almost three decades ago. Sometimes it is so subtle, our clients don’t even know. Other times it’s blatant, conniving manipulation of humans.
