Having a Dog in Your Life
You might not be aware of it but to own a dog means to be responsible for its care, and the more you provide this care the more benefit you get. It is an individualized process to look for the right companion pet. This is because every person in unique with unique needs and desires. The same can be said for every breed that is out there. Where these different breeds came from cannot be fully know but we can read many stories about where they came about, but they were all bred with a purpose and these purposes have been used all over the world. When we speak of its utility, we can generalize them into two: They are used to help men in their tasks or to do a certain duty, they on the other hand are also simply considered as pets.
When dogs do their function, they act as either an ally or a companion in work, and the other is a social companion. Since dogs are very reliable as a companion, there is a bond formed with his master and this relationship is sort of a mutual one. This bond however is the reason why an owner can gain a lot of benefits. Because companionship with a dog carries a positional attitude, it means that it will help you develop a strong sense of calling to be in-charge. And when you are in-charge, you are responsible for its well-being. When it is hungry, you feed it. When it want to relieve, you bring it out. You exercise and play with him when he is restless. You bring him to the vet when he is experiencing health issues. Owners gain their dogs trust, loyalty and devotion because of the care that they show. That is why some people get attached to their dogs which can be compared to an attachment with a best friend.
Training your dog is one of the most neglected area when it comes to caring for them. We have to remember that they do not think like humans, they simply respond to patterns that we cast, they are very sensitive to these cues that many would assume that they have a cognitive ability like humans. Simply put, you cannot teach dogs the way you teach a child, it just does not work that way.
The reason why you need to train them though offers several benefits. A dog’s life can be saved if he is trained. If you always train them with commands, you will have voice control over your dog. Your ability to get your dog back to you safety can mean its life. If your dog is trained manners, you can bring them anywhere without getting into an embarrassing situation or without getting injured. With training an owner can understand his dog better.
