It is well known that man’s best friend is the dog. He accompanies and supports us. He stands loyally by our side, can comfort and make us laugh.
There are situations with dogs that you can only understand if you have integrated a dog as a family member.
Among the 10 things only dog owners will understand are some unusual occurrences, as you will read about in a moment:
You really will never be alone again
A dog is a really affectionate creature. As a domesticated predator, it adapts to our human habits like no other domestic animal.
If the little puppy still wants to follow you everywhere in the first few days, then we consider that a sweet and natural reaction.
However, if your dog becomes an adult with a shoulder height of over 60 cm and an affinity for water, you will need a larger bathtub in the future!
Shoe cabinets are not a style element, they are mandatory
Some may call it a myth that all dogs chew on their owners’ shoes.
In fact, it happens more often than you think. Puppies or dogs that have to be alone a lot can sometimes not resist the shoes because they are afflicted with our smell.
Dogs with an urge to move can also lead their master on a leash if necessary
It is really important to make sure that your dog’s personality suits you!
All too often it can be seen how talented people pull their coach potato behind them on a leash.
Once a hunter, always a hunter
Some of the most popular dog breeds were originally bred to be hunting dogs and have not lost that instinct to this day.
Whether it’s the neighbor’s cat or a squirrel in the city park, what a real hunter is, even with the best education, he gives in to his hunting instinct from time to time!
Regardless of whether you feed your furry friend with dog food or according to BARF principles.
The moment you pull a steak out of the fridge, he will strategically position himself next to you, showing you his interest!
Dogs are always helpful
They bring you their leash so you don’t forget the walk. They follow you to the toilet or to the bathroom to brush your teeth.
They will also bring you your shoes, albeit a bit chewed if necessary. They’ll also happily make you less red meat and beg for your steak.
One of the best inventions is the cordless handheld vacuum cleaner
You have carefully distributed the seats on the sofa. Your four-legged, hairy family member has also been assigned a corner with a dog blanket!
Nevertheless, your dog always finds a way to ignore this blanket and spread his hair well on your upholstered furniture by begging for hugs or cuddling together.
With a dog there is no chance of getting depressed
On the contrary, dogs today as companions help many people out of depression.
The sensitive beings know exactly when we need comfort and closeness!
Our dogs are also wonderful actors
We allow ourselves to be seduced by their innocent looks into not always sticking to the actually valid commandments and prohibitions.
In cases of illness or in old age, we pamper you all the more. Suddenly the poor dog is being carried rather than being taken for a walk and the dog’s bowl is placed next to the basket!
Until the check-up appointment at the vet, your darling will put up with this pampering. As soon as you arrive at the practice, some complaints will vanish into thin air and the instinct to flee will take hold!
The little rebellions of everyday life
No matter what you have forbidden your dog, staying on the sofa or jumping up to good friends to say hello.
A furry friend will find a way to circumvent your no-gos on a small scale. Just put your head or paw on the sofa and instead of jumping to shoulder height, you only jump to the knee!
