Fur Baby Science, Our Connection with Dogs
Dogs bring us joy. Their unconditional love and devotion have set them up to be forever man’s best friend and always our fur baby! From wet nose kisses to belly rubs, we love to capture every moment with our companions. This leads us to wonder, why are we so connected with dogs?
Dogs understand us the way no other animal does. Researchers across the globe have studied this connection between humans and dogs. The findings are fascinating. Dogs make a visual connection with humans, this triggers the same hormonal response as when humans connect with babies. Dogs are one of the few animals that look us in the eyes and seemingly understand, they just get it. This bond is a positive and emotional one that develops into trust and loyalty. This chemical response benefits us humans; the increased oxytocin in the brain has a calming effect.
Dogs help calm our minds and heal our hearts. They can help us get around when we can not and can even do their share of the household work. Dogs may not be able to speak words, but they definitely understand us, it could be the use of vocal commands or just our body language. Some have even started using techniques to expand these tricks, like Bunny the Talking Dog! These amazing animals, in whatever capacity they touch our lives, are a real treasure to our human experience.
Their loyalty has been memorialized throughout time and all over the globe. Scotland’s Greyfriars Bobby and Japan’s Hachiko are just two of the most famous dogs. These are some of our favorite dog statues to honor your pup and grace your garden.
