After a long day at work, dog owners are typically greeted by a pooch that is overjoyed to have them home.
Just imagine if spouses or mates would be as excited to see their significant other walk through the door after being apart all day.
Some relationship experts say working up that kind of enthusiasm can help a relationship.
"Show you're glad to see her, even if she's only been gone five minutes," said Carla Genender in her book "DogSense."
Genender believes it is time that people learn more about unconditional love from man's best friend. Her book provides 99 tips on caring, affection, communication, acceptance and appreciation. The book also contains amusing photos along with background information written from the dog's perspective.
