“There is so much about dogs to learn.
There is alsomuch about people to be learned,
by studying dogs.” 

– Clarence Pfaffenberger (1963)

“I sometimes look into the face of my dog Stan and see wistful sadness
and existential angst when all he is actually doing
is slowly scanning
 the ceiling for flies.” — Merrill Marko

One of Merrill Markoe’s four dogs

“I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity,
can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them
to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues,
which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread,
into the fabric of their lives.”

– Leo Tolstoy

“Our passions and desires are unruly, but our character subdues these elements into a harmonious whole. Does something similar to this happen in the physical world? Are the elements rebellious, dynamic with individual impulse? And is there a principle in the physical world which dominates them and puts them into an orderly organization?”

 — Tagore, Interviewed by Einstein, 14 April 1930.

Libido is object-seeking

– Fairbairn

The laws of learning, like the laws of gravity, are always in effect.
We as trainers just have to learn to apply them.
