How We Used to Treat Our Dogs Today is Much Different than in Years Past 

Updated: Apr 19


We didn't know years ago, what we do and know today. We now understand dog psychology better than ever, and the needs that dogs have as highly intellectual mammals. These days, we treat them like children, and in kind, they return the favor with love and gratefulness at the lives we give them. Dogs were originally domesticated over ten thousand years ago, when settlers would constantly change settings. Because of the food supply we had, we had rodents and small animals that followed suit. This in turn attracted wolves and other wild dogs. They then began to see that humans weren’t dangerous and that we were the source of the food. Fast forward a few thousand years, and the protector and guardian dog breeds like the Great Pyrenees and Newfoundland were bred to protect flocks of sheep. A Great Pyrenees can even climb trees with their six toed back feet and kill bears! They are acutely aware of their surroundings and protective to a fault. Btw, that’s a Great Pyrenees, Bark City Doggy Daycare Johnson City, NY owner Lindsey Sage’s beloved pet, Duncan.


How We Treat Our Pets Today


Back even just a few years ago, animals, specifically domesticated pets were treated like just that, a pet. We would have them sleep in cages at times and left in small areas while we went to work. It was the norm as people were told it is fine to leave them alone. They sleep with us or have a luxury pet bed they lay on that cost you anywhere from fifty to a hundred dollars. We spoil them and treat them exactly like family. We used to leave them at home when we went anywhere. Now we have affordable for every budget options for those needing a pet sitter Johnson City. Generally, these days we hire a doggy daycare Binghamton to watch our dogs for us. It helps to keep many bad behaviors at bay because they are being constantly given love, company, training and other special services. We also have all clients in a record log, and can call you if we have any issues that arise. They also have rooms to relax in when they need solo time, and large rooms to get lots of exercise.

It is not like that now. Animals have been discovered to be sensitive and loving beings with real genuine feeling and emotions. Pet minding classes are training classes that get your animal to listen to you. They are known to be quite effective and help build a bond between owner and animal. There is no need to just yell and scream to get your dog to come to you, take a class and learn how to effectively communicate with animals as they have feelings and emotions and read your body language better than you read body language.
