Dutiful Doggies – Friends of Humanity
Dogs are animals that can be domesticated and kept as pets. They have a relatively short lifespan of about 10-15 years, depending on the size as well as general health. They are carnivores and hence require a lot of protein in their diet. They are mammals that come in several different colours, just like humans, and can have a close connection with them.
In fact, dogs are often referred to as ‘Man’s best friend.’ This is because they are loyal, obedient, playful, and loving, so they make the perfect partner for many people. As a result, dogs can perform a wide variety of roles for us, depending on their breed, which affects their personality, size, and shape. These roles can range from being a child’s best friend to being a police dog and cutting down on crime.
There are numerous different breeds of dogs, all of whom have their wonderful personalities. These can be divided into pure breeds, crossbreeds, mixed breeds, and natural breeds. These range from dogs that can be quite hostile to dogs that simply love to play and have fun. They also result in differences in the way they express their emotions- some dogs bark loudly and deeply, while some don’t even bark at all, and some have high squeaky barks.
Dogs largely differ based on the way they adapt to different situations and habitats, their friendliness with humans as well as other dogs, the stability of their health, how easily they can be trained, and how much exercise and attention they need from their owners. All of these differences make every breed unique, just like every human is unique- therefore, if any human wants a dog, there will always be a breed that will suit their personality so that they can be excellent companions to each other.
What makes Dog special
Dogs are believed to be smarter than some humans in some cases- this is because they have advanced memory skills. Because of this, they can be trained and taught commands that they will respond to. They can understand human voice commands and gestures and can react to them according to their training. Because they’re loyal to humans, this intelligence makes certain breeds of dogs great as protection from robbers.
Dogs also have a strong sense of smell and can determine the direction a certain scent is coming from. This makes them very useful to the police when they’re chasing a criminal and need to keep track of where they’re going. They are also helpful to the militarybecause of their sense of smell, as they can be trained to track down and sniff out bombs.
Dogs are predators and are very good at hunting down their prey because their vision allows them to target moving objects easily. Their field of vision is limited to three shades- yellow, blue, and grey. Nevertheless, their sharp visual abilities make them great partners to humans when hunting.
They also work well with hunters because of their hearing abilities, as they have a much broader range of sounds they can hear as compared to humans. Because of this, they are also sometimes used as service dogs to people with hearing difficulties.
Overall, dogs tend to be very alert thanks to their strong senses- more alert than humans. This makes them great companions in any scenario, be it a simple stroll in a park or a partner to a security guard at night.
Dogs as emotional support
Because dogs are loving and loyal, they are sometimes used as emotional support animals. They can comfort people by being their companion and through affection, so they’re of great help to people who suffer from mental health-related issues. Their love is unconditional, which is why they can help counter conditions such as depression- they don’t need a reason to stay with a human and continue giving them love and affection.
The person’s status in society or their own personality hardly makes a difference- as long as a person treats their dog well and also responds with affection, they can share a beautiful bond.
Some dogs are explicitly used as therapy dogs- they’re friendly and sociable dogs who help with psychological therapy, and they often are sent to visit hospitals and show love to patients who may be undergoing operations that are taking a toll on their physical and emotional health.
For people looking to improve their overall health through exercise, dogs serve as amazing companions- taking them on walks and jogs considerably increases the human’s exercise and hence also improves their diet. As a result, dogs can be significantly life-changing for a lot of people. Some families get dogs to give company to their children, who, as a result of taking care of a dog, grow to become kinder and more compassionate towards other animals as well as humans.
Treating them Right
Unfortunately, many people do not treat dogs- be it their own or someone else’s- with proper care. Some people are cruel enough to kill dogs for their own amusement. Dogs are often dumped by their owners on the streets, mostly puppies who do not have their mothers to protect them.
Some people commit awful atrocities on their dogs by beating them, not feeding them at all, not giving them proper medicine if they need any or yelling at them, to film a video, and try to get views. Sometimes, people force their dogs to fight each other so that they can place bets.
Some people insist that it is necessary to hurt your dog sometimes, because that is the only way they will obey- when in fact this has been proven false. Because of this animal cruelty, these dogs either tend to become feral and angry or very silent and weak. No dog deserves to be mercilessly beaten just for the fun of it or dumped because they are considered a burden.
They are sweet, loving animals who can be someone’s loyal companion, and therefore we must take action whenever we see a dog being mistreated. This action can range from educating the owner to contacting appropriate authorities, from the police to animal welfare NGOs, who can provide safety for the dog.
Dogs can be wonderful companions- they fulfill a variety of roles that can enhance daily life, and they also give company to those who may be lonely. The presence of a dog can significantly change someone’s life for the better, and by bonding together, both the dog and the human can develop more loving and affectionate personalities that the world could benefit from.
