The journey to reaching mutual trust with a pet may be a long one. It certainly isn’t easy for many of us. After all, dogs can be just like children. And building your relationship with them is an important part of paw-renthood. There are many ways to get closer to them, and there isn’t really one set path. But when you do reach that point, it can be the most rewarding feeling for any pet owner.

In this video, a fur-parent decides to put her dogs in a little trust experiment. She leaves her two corgis with bowls of food, instructing them to wait until she’s allowed them to eat. She exits the room and waits before she returns. When she does, the corgis haven’t even turned to the food.
