Why Are Dogs So Loyal To Their Owners And Each Other?
What Is Dog Loyalty?
Dogs are very social animals. They live with their families and play together all day long. When they’re not playing or sleeping, they’re out doing something else with them. Some of these activities include hunting, guarding territory, protecting babies from danger, chasing away intruders, and much more! A dog’s life is full of fun things to do. One of those fun things is being friendly with other dogs. Many people think that if they get close enough to a dog, then it will become friendly towards them, but this isn’t true at all. The reason why most dogs don’t like people is because they’re scary!
But what makes them different from us humans? What makes us human?
Humans have emotions such as fear, anger, happiness and sadness. These emotions make up our personality and make us unique from other animals. Animals, however, don’t have any emotions. All they do is react to events as they occur. For example, when a wolf sees a human approaching him, he’ll run away from the man and hide behind some bushes. If the man approaches too closely though, then he might attack him. Now let’s say that the man was carrying a knife and attacked the wolf while he was hiding behind the bushes.
Then what would happen? Would the wolf still be scared?
No! He would now have anger towards the man, and would attack him whenever he saw him again.
The wolf is not scared when something bad happens because he doesn’t have fear. He also doesn’t get angry from being hurt.
Wolves are animals, so they don’t feel sadness or happiness either. They don’t get sad from being hurt, and they don’t get happy from petting. Their mood doesn’t change at all!
But what about dogs?
Dogs are different because they do have emotions! For example, when a dog is hurt, he yelps in pain and tries to move away from the thing that hurt him. This shows that dogs get scared when they’re hurt.
But what about other emotions?
Dogs also have anger, sadness, happiness and fear. Let’s see an example of each emotion in a dog’s life.
Fear: A dog is scared of fireworks, so he cowers in fear until they stop. Sadness: A dog gets lost in the woods and is away from his family.
He is extremely sad and lonesome until he is reunited with them. Anger: A cat approaches a dog from behind and scratches him. He becomes angry and chases the cat away. Happiness: A dog plays catch with his owner, and enjoys being tossed the ball.
These are a few examples of emotions in dogs. They’re different from humans because in some circumstances, animals don’t have control over their own actions.
For example, when a dog sees a human, he isn’t scared by what the human is going to do to him. Instead, he has an instinctive fear of him. He doesn’t know that humans are friendly sometimes, he just knows they can be dangerous sometimes. You can’t teach an animal that something is dangerous, they just know. They know that fire is hot, and water is dangerous, but they don’t know that humans can be both.
