Inspired by this thread.
Disclaimer: I’m a cat person, but every now and then I hang out with dogs and their person(s) and notice that some of them view human life in terms of a man (sic)-vs-dog relationship: as a matter of authority, alphaness, dominance, obedience, and control.
Of course, a lot don’t - and their dogs may be just as well behaved, btw. But it’s a phenomenon I think is worth examining - especially to ask: Is this personality particularly drawn to dog fancying, or does keeping and raising dogs (especially multiple dogs) encourage people to see human relations in doggy terms?
Please spare me any lectures about the “nature” of dogs (or humans, or cats) and why it’s “necessary” to treat any of these in any particular way.
