Why do people own animals? They keep dogs as pets for what reason?
Animal behaviorist Frania Shelley-Grielend stated there are numerous reasons why people keep pets.
“Some are the ways in which those animals might be advantageous to them, whether it be through company, safety, or other purposes. Other justifications include how they might assist in the pet’s care, training, or companionship, according to Shelley-Grielend.
She basically said that we look after pets because they are adorable.
Our minds instinctively believe that we should cuddle, hug, and look after them.
According to cat researcher Mikel Delgado, “people’s caretaking behavior is stimulated when they see [pets’] cute faces.” They make us think of newborns, so we feel compelled to look after something that is small, adorable, perhaps crying, and in need of assistance.
We can try to deny it all we want, but the fact remains.
Because they have pets to feed, wash, care for, and adore, some people are comfortable living alone. That’s why some unhappy people feel their lives improve or brighten when they start sharing their home with canine companions.
Because of these fluffy infants, even the toughest hearts have seen themselves melt.
And even the most irritable heart can’t help but love and care for dogs and puppies, despite the fact that they can be a handful due to their enthusiasm.
Dogs are able to detect affection.
They are quite perceptive of us. They are aware of our emotions and respond in accordance with those feelings.
They are aware of when we are not looking, so they can take our food, toy, or favorite chair at the ideal time.
Dogs are able to detect when we are ill, and they will come to comfort us and hasten our recovery.
They are able to tell whether a human is not to be trusted.
In this video, an old woman scrubs the outdoor area while her dogs playfully misbehave.
However, one of them is also focused.
The dog had already noticed that she was too far away when the woman bended her knees to get on the tiny stool. The stool is pushed toward the woman by the dog. Until the woman can get it, the dog pushes.
The dog stands up on its hind legs and leans against the woman once she was safely seated on the stool.
An individual want to play with their person!
It’s comforting to know that someone is watching out for this old woman. She undoubtedly provides the best (spoiled) care for her dogs. And that’s presumably the reason why her pets are watching out for her as well.
When you’re senior, moving around can be challenging enough. But it’s considerably tougher for an elderly person to fall or get hurt.
She might not be able to be carried by the dogs or cared for by them in a humane manner. However, it’s comforting to know that they are protecting her to the best of their abilities.
In the video below, you can see how the dog moves the woman’s chair.
