Dog: Man’s best tutor, man's best friend

BY IVY GLORIA MUSORA
@ PECHAKUCHA EVENT AT MSM ON JAN 28, 2016

Often, human beings have developed soft spots for pets and plenty have been misunderstood for the immense fondness and attachment they have towards their pets. This relationship has also been deemed as a one way affair, where pets are fully dependent on their owners whilst they are only expected to give back companionship. But wait a minute !!!!!!!! There is more to companionship that one can get from their pets – in particular – DOGS!!! Speaker Ivy Gloria Musora discusses these priceless life lessons.

Without undermining the importance and relevance of attending management training sessions or counseling sessions, this presentation focuses on the importance of dogs to mankind – how they can teach you important life lessons - only if you pay attention when they make the effort to teach you.
