And the best way to shake stuck is to do something completely different. In this guys case, ask to go for a walk. Find your new ball and throw it around. Nudge your human to put peanut butter in your bone. Change creates a shift in your mind and that distraction is the very thing you need move your thoughts onto other aspects of life that open you up to different feelings and thoughts. That ”difference” is what causes change. Once we have an alternative experience, hence shift, or change, we’ve engaged an alternative experience, creating a different mood than before. When fido has the feeling that opportunity still exists, he or she can go back out out into the woods and veer around those pesky trees to re-enter on the better side of life! Woof!
