The relationship with dogs started tens of thousands of years ago, most probably as a simple work arrangement—we hunt and eat together. Times changed, and society became more complex, dogs adapted so they continue to share our lives.
Today, dogs are involved in our lives in so many ways. No matter what we are up to, there is usually a way to have a dog by our side. They fill voids in our lives, comfort us in our darkest hours, and, most important, they make us strive to be better humans.
That’s what most of us hope for when we open our lives to that loveable four legged friend, be it a ball of fluff and puppy breath or to an adolescent or mature dog who needs a new home. What we certainly don’t hope for it’s a K9 terror that messes up the house, shreds your most treasured belongings, barks non-stop and all hours, and pulls your sholders out of its socket on every walk. Sadly, for so many people, these miserable images sum up life with their dogs.
What makes the difference between the vision of a great dog and harsh realities?
