Dogs the most common pets
Pets are animals domesticated for companionship but are not eaten and usually vary according to human preference or associated beliefs. Snakes, lions, or cheetahs are considered a threat to human life despite others seeing them as the best pets to keep at home. From the numerous variety of pets, dogs are the most common all over the world, with their popularity resulting from the following reasons:
Dogs are easy to interact with or issue commands to. Unlike other pets, dogs have a high intelligence level and require little training to start interacting freely with them. Trained dogs can understand or follow commands issued by masters and can do various duties ranging from fetching items, jumping, or playing games as per the command of the master. The high level of intelligence shown by dogs enables the owners to identify the right food, comfortable shelter easily, or know when they are uncomfortable just by looking at character change. It is difficult to understand the characteristics of the other pets like snakes or lizards, who can easily die if not taken care of.
A dog offers security to its master and properties, explaining why they are left at home when owners are absent. Their fierceness scares off burglars or strangers because their barking interprets danger, signaling people to take necessary security actions. Owners use dogs for hunting purposes because of their running speed, enabling them to catch prey fast. In some places, they are used for herding cattle, goats, or sheep to protect them from wild predators like wolves preying on animals in the field. Highly trained dogs are used in the law enforcement department to sniff drugs or other unwanted substances and run after lawbreakers.
Quoted by king Federal of Prussia 1789, “Dog is man’s best friend, ” dogs offer great companionship and friendship to their masters. As the author of the book ‘My name is Red likes to put it, “Dogs speak, but only to those who know how to listen.” Although they cannot communicate in human language, dogs have proved in many circumstances to be great companions sharing the grief, pain, or pleasure of the people. When people in the households leave the house, dogs show sadness, but the dogs run towards the owners, jumping and barking, showing affection to their owners on their arrival. These incredible human-like intelligent behavior displayed by dogs make them preferable to the other pets contributing to their popularity in most households.
The pet dogs are lovable and popular because of their contribution to family life by providing security, companionship, or entertainment to families. Their harmless unless they face intense provocation also attribute to the popularity dogs have. It is arguable that cats also possess dogs’ attributes, but dogs are far more intelligent and easy to train. The choice of a pet depends on a person’s preference. Dogs deserve to feel loved or appreciated, stroking their fur, spending time with them, or talking to them in a lovable way makes them feel special. Pet dogs are so far the most common pets worldwide due to the exemplary traits they display.
