There are moments when it’s good to let an animal make a mistake.
They learn from them just like us! If we’re always preventing their false moves, they lose the ability to think for themselves. That’s when we’re over-controlling and it doesn’t benefit anyone. Allowing them to make these slip-ups every now and then hits the perfect balance.
It’s important to allow them the freedom to make a mistake, but they shouldn’t have to fear what happens if they do. You can’t get angry at them for not being “perfect” or doing exactly what you had in mind.
