Canine: Man’s Best Friend
We all know that dogs are called man’s best friend but do we know the reason why? And like a friend contributes to your well-being, so a dog has contributed a lot of things for the welfare of his human masters and to other animals as well, in very important ways. And this kind of relationship between dogs and its human master have been witnessed as far as we can remember. There is no other animal you can compare to a dog when it comes to sustaining a relationship with their owners. The way dogs interact with humans is something unique and cannot be seen in other animals. And this is how our canine companions came to be.
There are many important roles that dogs play in our world. They act as a loving companion and family member for most people who own one. But it is not only for human companionship that dogs are known for because throughout history we have seen many heroic deeds that dogs have done that we humans are not even able to do. The experience of having a dog by our side is indeed an extraordinary experience.
Many dogs have become a part of law enforcement units and have contributed much for them. We have seen dogs sniffing for bombs and drugs in public places and this is how they help law enforcers in their daily jobs. How many lives have been saved by dogs doing human rescue work? The help of our canine companions is very important during times of calamity when there is a need to rescue humans in the wilderness, water, snow, or during an earthquake. We have seen the importance of the work of a dog during rescue. Dogs ask very little in return when they do the amazing tasks they are asked to do.
Many disabled humans rely on dogs for their everyday tasks and needs. A disabled human being will consider a dog as a very valuable helper especially if the dog is well-trained. Dogs help blind people to see their way through without experiencing any danger. Dogs help in many other disabilities where personal aid is in need. And, like a good family member, they don’t ask anything n return.
If you take a dog into your family, they are very willing to become a member of your family. They treat the family as they would treat their pack. For as long as humans existed with dogs, humans have recognized this instinct in dogs and with the help of the canine we have molded this relationship to what you see today.
With the way they behave towards their human masters, dogs can indeed be called man’s best friend. And for the dog, the human is a dog’s best friend.
