WHY HUMANS NEED DOGS
DOGS AND HUMANITY
Humans and Dogs have been known to operate together as early as 15000 years ago, making dogs as the oldest domesticated animal.
Everyone you meet across the streets is either a dog person or knows someone who is a dog lover.
Dogs are known to understand speech and can be genetically predisposed to be outgoing. Both humans and dogs are social creatures and while dogs lessen their owners’ worries and make them feel safe, humans care for and nurture their pooches thus the relationship being symbiotic.
Researchers discovered that hyper-sociability in dogs could be linked to the same gene that makes people with development disorder Williams-Debenture syndrome friendly and trusting.
Dogs’ genetic makeup can dictate their personality, while the puppies are influenced by the lifestyles and personalities of their owners. The most common key animal traits influenced are Calmness, train-ability, sociability, and boldness.
Dogs process both what we say and how we say it in a way that is amazingly similar to how human brains do.
Things Dogs and Humans have in common

- They Love food
Humans and dogs are social creatures and much of their social interactions revolve around food.
- They are Intelligent
Research shows that the average dog is as smart as the average two-year-old child. Dogs have shown to have relatively notable emotional intelligence, problem-solving skills and even demonstrate a theory of mind.
- They are emotional
Both of them are deeply emotional creatures and bond strongly with their respective families.
Studies show that dogs interpret emotional expressions on human faces. They are instinctive but intuitive and thought to experience love, fear, anger, joy, and affection.
MOST COMMONLY BRED DOG BREEDS
- German Shepherd
German Shepherds are exceptional animals that are courageous, obedient, incredibly loyal, and eager to learn.
They are also intelligent and excel at anything they are trained to do. German Shepherds love their human so much that they will suffer from separation anxiety, and can be destructive when bored and left alone at home.
They are known to be a calm, courageous, and confident dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself immediate and indiscriminate friendship.
Rottweilers should be thoroughly socialized at an early age so that their territorial instincts are controlled rather than indiscriminate.
Rottweilers are inclined towards dominance and will respect an assertive owner who knows how to lead a strong-minded dog.
They are very strong and intelligent working dogs.
Boerboels are masculine and buoyant in their movement. They are reliable, obedient, intelligent, self-assured, and fearless. They are also playful and affectionate towards their owners.
Boerboels are gentle and good with children and will guard their family, friends, and property with their lives.
They are very excellent companion dogs. They like attention and are loyal to their owners. Chihuahuas are good family pets when treated respectfully but they have a reputation for snapping at strangers or at small children threatening their diminutive size.
