Dogs are thought to be man’s best friend. And undoubtedly, they are! They are always there when you need them rather than allow you to feel alone. They can really lighten up somebody’s mood. The world has seen many stories which tell us how a dog is incomplete with its parent.
It is seen that many times pet owners too develop a relationship with their pet, very similar to that of a parent and child. This bond is known as”stable base effect”.
Sometimes dogs are very cautious and careful in the beginning but they can sometimes be goofy and overdo it. But they will be fine once they get comfortable around you.
For many dogs, the attachment they feel towards their owner is essential for their well-being. It is studied that while dogs enjoy one another’s company, human attention is what they crave. You may not realize if your dog becomes too much attached to you, and that attachment becomes extreme to an extent that in the event you leave your dog for even a day or two, they stop behaving normal. All they want that time is you.
Puppies can sometimes get together with you immediately, if you spend some time with them and treat them well. It’s very natural for a dog to bond with its owner and if both of them trust each other, then the procedure happens very quickly. And from that point start a happy love story as with time that pup becomes an irreplaceable part of your life.
Sometimes when puppies are in stress due to some reason they can become very clingy. Older dogs may also show clinginess and over attachment because of deteriorating senses. That’s the time when you need to know them well and take care of them. They need you that time, and you need to be there together.
With all the love dogs give us, we should give them the same love in return. We ought to give them enough time, go on walks with them and play with them. Give them hugs and talk to them. It’s a beautiful world with a dog as a pet. Cherish that.
