Why do people need pets? Why do they have dogs as pets?
Animal behaviorist Frenia Shelley-Greeland says people get pets for a variety of reasons.
“Some can benefit these pets, be it communication, protection, curiosity gratification, or anything else. And other reasons are how they can benefit the pet through care, training or communication,” Shelley-Greeland explained.
Basically, she said, we care about pets because they are cute.
Our brain automatically thinks that we should hug them, hug them and take care of them.
“When people see beautiful faces, it stimulates them to groom themselves,” says cat researcher Mikel Delgado. “They remind us of babies, and so there is a need to take care of something small, beautiful, perhaps crying and in need of help.”
We can deny it all we want, but it’s true.
That’s why some people live comfortably alone, because they have pets to feed, bathe, take care of and love. That’s why some unfortunate people get excited or feel like their lives get brighter when they start living with four-legged friends.
These fluffy babies soften even the hardest of hearts.
And while dogs and puppies can be a handful due to their energy, even the clumsiest heart can’t help but love and care for them.
