Master and dog bond

How well will you know if your dog is already attached to you? Well, our puppy is just a stray dog but he is clean. We enjoy taking care of the puppy and we baby the puppy so much. We play with him during our spare time and we let the puppy sleep in our bed. I know that somehow our puppy is already attached to us because when I go home from work, as soon as I open the gate, I can already hear him barking and waiting for me at the door. Even if we bring him in another house and others would play with him, he always runs to either my partner or to me. He is just so adorable. How about your dog/s? Is/are they also attached to you?

It sounds like you have indeed already bonded with your pup but allowing it to sleep in your bed is a bad idea. To the dog this is like saying that the dog is of equal status to you, if you continue this it may seek to become dominant over you when older. Always feed your dog after you have eaten, make it walk to heal, go through doors first and never let it sit on furniture. all the best urban

Really I have not read a study yet that dogs are not supposed to sleep in bed together with their masters. It's just that while Max-name of my puppy, is still small, we just want to spoil him. But of course there will also be a limitation that will be placed or set along the process.

That's fine then, to understand a dog, know that a dog is not a human in a furry coat! Any dog, every dog thinks it is a wolf and you are the head of its pack, that is why it accepts your commands. Do not think that training or disciplining your dog is cruel, a dog is happy if he knows his place in the hierarchy. Never hit your dog, the best discipline is to ignore it, hitting it is attention and dogs crave attention. The worst punishment imaginable to a dog is to exclude it from your presence. A dog alone is a dog in danger, a dog with the pack is safe and feels secure. No puppy should be separated from its mother and litter mates before 8 weeks and any breeder that releases it before then should be reported to the authorities. all the best urban

Yes I know that dogs are not human but I believe that they can somehow understand humans in a way. I pity a dog whenever someone hurts them. But the puppy that we have, we separated him from his mother because it was just given by a friend, we feed our puppy with milk and dog food, do you think that would be okay?

dogs form tight bonds with their masters.ironically,cats do too.our neighbor borrowed one of our cats for sometime.they have a lot of house mouse and can't get rid of them.they borrowed our cat who is a skilled mouse hunter.when my mom bought the cat to our neighbor's,she ran under the table and refused to come out.even if our neighbor gave her food.our neighbor told my mom and decided to drop by to check on the cat.upon hearing my mom's voice the cat came out from under the table and meowed at my mom,like she's saying,"I don't like it here.let's go home".

I used to love cats also. But my partner is more fond of dogs. Before, I even bathe the cat that I always see in our garage. I feed him as well. But ever since we were given a puppy by a friend, the cat disappeared, LOL! got jealous maybe.I believe that both animals can understand humans. How about you?
