Have you ever wondered, why are dogs so loyal to their owners?
You might have heard some amazing stories about dogs, man’s best friend. Think about Capitan,
a loyal German shepherd. He ran away from home after his owner’s death, Argentinian Miguel Guzman in 2006. A week later Mr. Guzman’s family went to his graveyard to pay their respect and found Capitan sitting there, wailing. Since then, the dog has never left the cemetery in Villa Carlos Paz, in central Argentina. Capitan sometimes goes to see his family for a short period of time but always comes back and lays next to his owner.
Mr. Guzman bought Capitan as a gift for his son in 2005.
Why are Dogs so Loyal to their Owners?
Some argue that dogs love us because we give them food and shelter. But it’s not true. If you see how a dog greets his owner, you will be overwhelmed by how much love and affection dogs have.
Dogs are pack animals. They want to belong to a group, either animals or human. Dogs are not loners. They’re always seeking to be one of us. They want to gain our acceptance. Therefore, if a member is separated from the group, even if it’s temporarily, they will feel like a part of them is missing. According to Dr. Zawistowski, an ASCPA science advisor, dogs have a really strong urge to protect and serve their pack.
Dogs are just Loving Creatures
Dogs and humans have shared a great bond for over 13000 years. Within the years, dogs have built so much love and affection towards human. Now, all they want to do is please you and love you. No matter what you do to them, they will always forgive you and be there for you. They have also developed a certain level of sympathy and empathy for humans. Have you ever noticed how your dog behaves when you are sad?
My dog, Ollie, although can be hard to train sometimes, is a great companion. I know that he will always be there for me. Whenever I feel sad or disappointed, he will walk slowly towards me and lay on my lap. He will always give me that sad look with his cute puppy eyes. It makes me feel like he understands how I’m feeling.
Dog Man’s Best Friend
Dogs give humans so much love, but do we deserve it? I found that dogs who fight and attack only do so because they have been conditioned by humans that way. I’ve heard numerous stories about humans that mistreat their dogs badly: dogs that are over bred for profit; dogs that are forced to fight; dogs that are abused, or even disowned by their owners. Deep down, just like us, dogs want to be accepted and to be loved. They want to serve and protect us unconditionally. How about us? What are we going to do? It’s time to return the favor.
