Dogs are thought to be man’s best friend. They’re always there when you need them rather than let you feel alone. They can really lighten up someone’s mood. The world has witnessed many stories that tell us how a dog is incomplete with its parent.
A man in New Jersey suffering from clinical depression, read about the beneficial presence of dogs and brought a golden retriever home. He suddenly started feeling responsible and felt this strong need to call home.
This is just one example. Dogs have been very faithful to men for ages.
It is said that many times pet owners too develop a relationship with their pet, very similar to that of a parent and child. This bond is known as”stable base effect”.
Sometimes dogs are extremely cautious and careful in the beginning but they can sometimes be goofy and overdo it. But they will be fine once they get comfortable around you.
For most dogs, the attachment they feel towards their owner is fundamental for their well-being. It is studied that while dogs like each other’s company, human attention is what they crave. You may not realize when your dog becomes too much attached to you, and that attachment gets intense to an extent that if you leave your dog for even a day or two, they stop behaving normal. They stop eating.
Puppies can sometimes get along with you immediately, if you spend time with them and treat them nicely. It is very natural for a dog to bond with its owner and if both of them trust each other, then the procedure happens very quickly. And from there start a happy love story as with time that puppy becomes an irreplaceable part of your life.
Sometimes when puppies are in stress due to some reason they can become very clingy. Older dogs can also show clinginess and more than attachment due to deteriorating senses. That’s the time when you will need to know them well and take care of them. They need you that time, and you should be there with them.
With all the love dogs give us, we should give them the exact same love in return. We ought to give them enough time, go on walks with them and play with them. Give them hugs and speak with them. It’s a beautiful world with a dog for a pet. Cherish that.
