Understanding what your dog is trying to communicate by understanding the differences between, a nervous bark and an angry growl is key to understanding your dog. You can read your dog’s body language and understand when they are happy, sad, tired, scared, and when they are asking for something.
Knowing what your dog is feeling, is very helpful, and needs to be respected because dogs are very much like humans. Dogs and humans have such a tight bond and this is much different than with any other animals. Our lives are so complete when we come home and see our dogs so excited to see us and they bring so much happiness and comfort.
The relationship that dogs and humans have has evolved over millennia going back far in history. Man used dogs as work dogs, guard dogs, hunting dogs, and as their best friends. Around the world today there are around 900 million dogs and 80 million of them are just in America alone.
The average dog owner in America spends more than $2000 a year on dog essentials like food, medical care, and toys. In 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans most dog owners had to evacuate their dogs. The Congress passed a law to make accommodations for dogs and help out the families. This really demonstrated how much humans cared about their dogs, and what started as a mutual relationship between two species became so much more than that.💕
When one loses a dog or Vise Versa, it hurts just as much at losing a friend or family member.
Dogs are so much more than pets, they are family and loving companions that are irreplaceable.
