As we have established, dog owners will keep these animals for various purposes. Depending on their breeding, dogs can be kept purely as pets, for guard duties, for competition purposes at dog shows, and many other functions. It’s this wide variety of uses for dogs that has made dogs earn the famous tag of being man’s best friend.
Let’s take a look at why dogs are actually man’s best friend.
Dogs are very loyal animals
Dogs happen to be very loyal animals and this is precisely why they are the most preferred animals when it comes to showings such as dog shows. Because they are loyal to their owners, they will always strive to impress them by performing well during such shows and the same can’t be said of other animals.
Dogs tend to mimic human behavior
The reason dogs perform very well during dog shows is because of their uncanny ability to mimic human behavior. Dogs will be trained to respond to certain commands and stimuli from their owners and it’s these commands that they will execute mostly to perfection during shows and they will actually be proud of their achievements just in the same way their owners will be.
Dogs have great memories
Dogs are able to perform really amazing feats because of their great memory. This is why they will be taken through training for various tasks to be performed during dog shows a couple of months or weeks prior to a showing and on the day of the showing they will still be able to recall how to go through these tasks.
Dogs like to impress
Dogs enjoy impressing their owners and this is not only because they get a treat for good behavior and good performance but also because they can sense their owner’s emotions. It’s their desire to bring out positive emotions in their owners that drives them to want to impress. This is the reason they will do well during shows.
It’s these amazing qualities in dogs that make them truly man’s best friend and the ideal partner for various activities such as dog shows
