Unconditional Love: 4 Lessons We Learn From Our Pets

Love lessons from our pets

Your Pets Practice Unconditional Love!

There are many lessons we can learn from our pets, the greatest one of all being unconditional love. Pets can be wonderful and sometimes pets can also be pests, just like people. The difference is that pets (at least most of them) won’t hold a grudge (at least not for long) when you misbehave (snap, yell, ignore, forget snacks). They’ll never throw that temporary loss of sanity in your face at some later, inopportune moment.

Anyone who has a pet already knows the joy of unconditional love—both given and received. When your pet loves you unconditionally, it’s hard not to reciprocate in exactly the same way. And maybe that’s the true lesson that our pets can teach us—to be better people to other people. Here are four (and maybe more) lessons about unconditional love we can learn from our pets.

Hugs and Kisses

There have been many studies done on the power of touch and contact and their ability to create healing energy. Think of how pets get excited to see you at the end of a long day, how they can’t wait to feel your hugs and how they return them with licks and kisses and the sheer joy it brings to both of you. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we greeted the people we love with that same enthusiasm? You don’t have to jump into anyone’s lap (unless you want to), but showing others how you feel about them is something that you could and should do whenever possible.

Even the tiniest dog would stand between his/her human and imminent danger (well, most would), and if you sat on the couch crying, most likely, your pet would be right next to you ready to provide comfort. Their unconditional love and support is felt and appreciated. This is a lesson in how to be a loyal friend and an unconditional supporter of those you love. You don’t always have to agree with the things a loved one says or does, but you can still be supportive.

Be Spontaneous

There’s a reason pets don’t come with daily planners. You’ll never see a dog organizing a weekly walk with the local pups or a cat making plans for dinner. That’s because they only live in the moment. As humans, we don’t always have that luxury, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be more like our pets and be more spontaneous. Hop in the car and go somewhere you’ve never been. Hanging your head out of the window to catch the breeze is optional. This is one of the core lessons we can learn from our pets—just have fun more often.

Be Responsible

Let’s face it, a lizard that can clean its own tank is unheard of, and a dog that feeds himself dinner would be a news-maker. Our pets rely on us, and the lesson we learn here is “responsibility.” Pets teach us what it’s like to be responsible for ourselves and for others. And once we learn how to be responsible in one area of life, it naturally carries over into other areas of life—this is a good thing.

Want more? How about not sweating the small stuff? Or how good it feels just to sit and do nothing at all every once in a while? Or why it’s good for us to drink lots of water? There are many lessons we can learn from our pets—some more profound than others—and they’re all about unconditional love!

So what if you don’t have a dog or a cat? Maybe your pet is a gecko, and maybe he doesn’t jump up and down when you walk in the door at night. It doesn’t matter. No matter what kind of pet you have, they still have lots to teach us!

    Psychic Seren: Thanks for the kind compliment. I love that you can tune-in to the non-human and human world. I bet that ability would benefit a lot of pets and their humans. 🙂 Awesome.

    Absolutely loved the insights in your article, LJ!! So dead on! Like humans, our animal brethren have distinct personalities, likes, dislikes, fears and even hopes. Unlike our species, however, they never try to present a false face or disguise their true natures.

    One of the most fulfilling applications of my gift is the ability to “translate” between pet and human. 🙂 We can learn so much about being better people from the non-humans who inhabit our world if we just take the time to observe and truly understand.

    Brightest Blessings,

    Great article !

    I manage a no-kill animal shelter that I founded and built in my area. There are plenty of great loving animals looking for a ” forever ” home.
    Any animal can be trained regardless of age or breed type.
    Adopted pets make VERY loyal and loving pets and really DO KNOW that YOU saved them.
    So please remember that if you are looking for a pet : adopt, don’t shop .

    Blessed Be )O(

    Truly, if you want to understand unconditional love get a pet. A comic once jokingly stated that he strived to be the person his dog thought he was. In my case, my dog has turned out to be as psychic as I am. For a loving soul that can’t talk, believe me, he communicates perfectly clearly. Pretty amazing. Animals are just like people. They come in all shapes, sizes, and even levels of consciousness and spiritual awareness. I think it is wise that we be aware of what they are trying to tell us.
    Yea for pets.
    Great article.

    What a Fabbo article.

    I often work long hours, and when I get home my dog Sam is always pleased to see me, no issues, no anger or resentment, he simply is happy I am home! He knows it’s time for walks, Feed time, followed by play time. He is a happy dog who knows what makes him happy and what his treats are, where his toys are, and he simply lives in the moment 🙂
    I often have to stop what I am doing, so I can play with him and fuss him terribly. he is a gift and I am grateful 🙂

    I have a macaw parrot named Snoopy. You are very right in your article. I don’t have children yet, but my husband says he knows I would be a good mother by the way I treat Snoopy. I tend to her all the time, I am overprotective and nobody can really pet her cept me or she’ll try biting them! lol
