Experts suggest ways to correct habits that keep us from resting well

I would like to ask some questions of those who say they treat their dogs like family: Do you put your children or spouse on a leash and walk them out in the yard so they can poop and pee? Or did you potty train your dog to use the toilet? Do you set a chair and place setting at the table for your dog? Do you always feed the dog the same food as the children and spouse? Or do you put dog dishes down on the floor and you and your spouse and children eat dog food from them? Do you put your children and spouse on leases to take them anywhere? If transporting your spouse and children, do you put them in crates or cages? If you can say "no" to any of these questions, you aren't treating your dog like family.
