With Evolution of mankind lots of things associated with it have been changed. Some changes have been positive when nature took its toll and some negative when it changed for the sake of human convenience. One of such change is the human relationship with their canine friend. There’s a very special bond which exists between human’s and dogs which is more than that of a servant and of hi obedient master. This bond which has become these days very materialistic as every other thing have become these days. Owning a dog is more of a status symbol and more expensive the breed the more high in status is a man. This has become a very common thinking in our society these days.

If we dig into history books we will find that Dog is not only a man’s Best friend but also is his oldest friend. This friendship started 100,000 years B.C. when dogs evolved from their ancestors i.e. Wolves and humans evolved from theirs. Dog was the first animal tamed. That time he was not tamed for sitting in a ladies pup wearing a nappy for the entire day or for sitting in kennels whole day long. But they were tamed when humans realized how helpful dogs can be in their daily chores right from hunting for food to guarding their abode in night. This wonderful friendship started on solid foundations of love, trust and faithfulness which both humans and dogs had for each other.

Many people ask why did dogs stayed with humans that time. It was because they used to get a safe place to rest in night with warmth of the fire and leftovers from human meal which they used to enjoy.

At that time the bond between the humans and dogs was most strong. But slowly human started becoming the strongest specie in the planet. He started using all other breeds selfishly for his own profit. Thus started degradation in this strong bond of humans and dogs. Dogs were slowly being bred only for some specific quality of theirs, like hound for his hunting skill. German Shepherds for his shepherding abilities and so on.

So dogs started getting their share of jobs in our society. But our society unfortunately did not provided enough space for our canine friends to socialize at all. They just became our dumb servants. Thus all problems started originating.

Further on in coming hubs I shall discuss more about these problems and how to tackle with them. In case you have any specific problem with your dog you can also ask me directly. I will be most willing to help.
