You Can Get Truly Amazing Career Advice From Dogs

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Blog. It’s a new year, and maybe a new you. January is the period of the year when we make promises to ourselves, renew commitments, relocate, and switch jobs. That’s a lot of weight on your shoulders, right? Most of us, before it gets to be too much or we become derailed, turn to role models and mentors for guidance and for advice. Well, who better to receive advice from than your doggy friend, Fido? You can learn a lot from watching dogs. If you want to be happier at work and move ahead in your career, try to think more like your dog. Yep, for real!



How To Become Happier at Work:

1. Show your enthusiasm. Learn to love whatever you’re doing. When your job seems routine, remind yourself of its purpose. Whether that’s to provide for your family, or to invent a new medicine, sometimes just smiling will make you feel more joyful.


2. Greet everybody. When you first get to work, take the time to wish everyone a good morning BEFORE you settle down to your tasks. Do this because your relationships with your co-workers actually do play a really huge role in your job satisfaction. Help to create a friendly atmosphere by exchanging daily pleasantries.

3. Lend others your support. Take a break from your own concerns to notice how your colleagues are feeling. Don’t go overboard with this but, like your dog – try to pick up on when stress levels are high, then offer your assistance and encouragement. I bet you’ll feel good about helping out, and people will be more likely to reciprocate when you need a hand.

4. Give early warnings. As you know, minor workplace conflicts can escalate if they’re allowed to fester. Just speak out [woof] tactfully at the first sign of a misunderstanding. This will make your work environment much more pleasant than just growling right before you bite.

5. Bounce back from conflicts. Forget about holding grudges. Put any unpleasant experiences behind you and demonstrate your willingness to cooperate with everybody to get the job done.

6. Follow your instincts. Sometimes you have to respond to unfamiliar situations without much time to prepare. Trust your instincts whenever you need to take a risk. If it’s your first time giving a staff presentation, boost your confidence by adapting what you already know from your days on the student debate team [OK, maybe it wasn’t the debate team, but you know what I mean].

7. Get plenty of sleep. You may never be able to arrange your schedule to get as much sleep as your dog, but you can still strive for 8 hours every night. Adequate rest is critical to your mental health.



How to Advance in Your Career: ?

1. Show off your accomplishments. Humility is an admirable quality, but sometimes you do need to promote yourself. Watch how the dogs soak up positive attention without looking like they’re bragging. Use your success stories to your advantage in both, your job evaluations and in your interviews.

2. Follow the rules. Ask yourself how does a dog know which objects are okay to chew? The logic behind some rules may elude you [or, you think to yourself, this rule is stupid…], but it’s usually best to go along with them to preserve order and to protect your paycheck in the workplace.

3. Practice active listening. Your co-workers are bound to value you more if you take a sincere interest in them. Listen respectfully to what others may be able to teach you.

4. Persist. Persistence is a big part of success. Stay focused and keep on the trail no matter what obstacles arise. If you get blocked from digging under the fence, maybe you can persuade someone to open the gate for you.

5. Reduce waste. Mail carriers and couriers perform valuable jobs, but many dogs obviously would prefer a paper-free world. Some dogs also regard as edible the many things that humans throw away. Impress your boss and help the environment by cutting down on paper waste and recycling more. PET ASSURE REVIEW

6. Contribute to the pack. Above all, think beyond your own interests to participate as a team player. Take satisfaction in working together to achieve common goals and improve everyone’s well-being. You can accomplish much more working with others than you ever could on your own.

Although chasing your tail may not get you anywhere in life, dogs are otherwise great role models for becoming more content and productive at work.

  1. Hi Jacquelyn 

    This is a beautiful written post “You can get truly amazing career advice from dogs” and I loved every bit of it. Okay, maybe I am a little bias because the most enjoyable aspect of working from home for me is having my pack always by my side. They are always positive, encouraging me on and I am their hero when I take them for their regular walks. I am definitely going to apply every doggy personality that I can within my business. If I lose track I can just look at my dog companions as examples because their attitude is always the same. 

    All the best

    • Thank you, Louis Munro, for your positivity and enthusiasm! That’s right, the comfort those dogs bring makes human beings people better. It’s a fact. People show improvement in these two significant areas (which is super cool) just according to their proximity to pets. They are: physical stress & emotional stress brought on in the workplace. Isn’t that something? Just to be near those animals decreases an individual’s overall level of workplace stress. 

      Oh well…[happy sigh…Sophia is in my lap right now 😏 ]  

      Warm Regards to you and the pack!

  2. Hi Jacquelyn, I really liked your article. Such a breath of fresh air to hear such insightful ways to get along with our colleagues. Dogs are usually the first ones to welcome us when we return home, and never seem to hold a grudge. What a better place this world would be if we could follow their example and say “the whole world is going to the dogs!”  🙂

  4. Hi Jacquelyn.  What a great post!  I am a dog lover and I really enjoyed the parallels you made here to how dogs think and act and how doing so yourself can make your life so much better.  It doesn’t matter if you are at work, home, or where you are, K9 philosophy is great!  Love unconditionally, Play, and Work hard, and Forgive and forget quickly.
