My dog loves his patterns. Breakfast time. Post-breakfast snuggle. Go outside. Sit while my parents have coffee and tea. Go on a walk. Come back and relax. Play with the ball. Go on a second walk. Dinner. Get on the couch for a few minutes. Go to bed.
It’s all very regimented, and specific. And it needs to happen at the same time every day, otherwise he gets visibly distressed.
Have you ever worked with someone who is like this? Very set in their patterns, and gets ruffled when the patterns change in any way, shape or form?
It is always difficult adapting to change. And yet changes are constantly happening. How we continue to provide people with the tools to accept change, and work with change the goal.

I love my dog dearly. And I know how to work with him. It’s a good learning lesson for me.
