True OP.

Dogs are very intelligent. I didn't even have to train my dog to stop urinating or defecating at the entrance porch but after she saw the digust on my face each time i cleaned up her mess she stopped and would wait till you take her outside before she does that.

They also get jealous too. grin



#Meninist cool

The jealousy aspect makes them dangerous. Some breeds can kill a baby so that their owners' love and attention won't shift from them to the baby. Yeah, they can see your baby as a rival.

Here’s 8 reasons why owning one's a smart
choice. grin grin grin grin smiley smiley wink cheesy cheesy

The science backs it up too – dogs really are the best pets.
Here’s why.



1. They evolved to love us

There’s evidence to suggest that we didn’t domesticate wolves –they came to us first. The friendliest ones hung around our ancestors’ campsites and so began the evolution of the modern dog.



2. They’re super smart

It’s no coincidence that dogs are so easy to teach. Dogs’ super social nature has allowed them to develop bigger brains , and those smarts are what make them so trainable.



3. They make you healthier

Dog owners are 34% more likely to get enough exercise than non-pet owners are. Walks aren’t just good for your pet, they’re
great for you too – dog owners have also been found to have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.


4. They make you happier

Interacting with a pet dog actively lowers your stress levels, leading to more relaxation, better moods, and less anxiety. One study even found that dogs are more effective at lowering people’s stress levels than their significant others.


5. They can even make your richer

A UK study found that pet owners earn upwards of $6,000 more per year than non pet owners. Even here in Nigeria, selling of dogs is now the main thing. Everyone wants to be a breeder. That seems like a pretty worthwhile investment.


6. They really do understand you
It’s recently been discovered that dogs can tell the difference between happy and angry human facial expressions . What does that mean? Well, when your pet looks like she knows she’s done something wrong, it’s probably because she does.


7. For security
Sometime ago, we. Saw how a Boerboel almost killed a theif that attacked his owner. If it were to be other pets' they don't and won't even bother.


8. They can serve as good companions for our kids
Look below and see how those kids are happy playing with the pet(dog).

Your point number 5 is the other way around.

Dogs do not make you richer, rather you must be richer to own a dog.

Less fortunate people don't think of catering to dogs, generally.

Plus dog breeding is cruel. Half the people on nairaland that make the biggest noise about dogs bark more than the animals they store because they're trying to advertise them. They keep so many different species in a place at a time not because they like dogs, but because it means more money.

Cat owners are more respectful to the animals they profess to love. Nowadays everything is about breeding and every thread on animals is to sell them.

Lies,cats make the best pets,I even prefer to have a rabbit around than a foolish dog.
Cats are concerned about their owners,but they simply don't care to act madly over that.They are more gentle and also smart.

Dogs arent as intelligent as you think
Cats are arrogant and selfish, dogs are humble and faithful

You are so correct!!

Anytime the new puppy is around me she always bites her like she's preventing her from coming to me

you are right when you say: Half the people on nairaland that make the biggest noise about dogs bark more than the animals they store because they're trying to advertise them. They keep so many different species in a place at a time not because they like dogs, but because it means more money. many people on pet section are marketers/peddlers, the true love for dogs cannot be seen in them!!! They are just after the money.



Outside that; Dogs still remain the best pets, anyone can have. If you doubt me, give it a try! grin grin cool cool wink wink wink

Nice topic. No 9 is Hunting--
I once own dogs and I couldn't count how many bush meat they have killed for me. My dogs understand every expression I made. Ocne I told them I need money or meat for house o! They wll just go into the bush,my own is just to wait behind BCS In next 20 minutes,I wll laugh...Also the best security aside God is DOG. Dogs will see thieves before soldiers,police or anyone of them see. If every home is has dogs in Nigeria,armed robbery will reduced..BCS dog go see them first and she no go gree them enter.

If u want me as your enemy, bring a dog to my apartment.

I recall staying at a relative's who used to breed dogs. I wasn't friendly towards them and made it clear I didn't want them around. They noticed and always avoided me.

But to my dismay, the female dog reported me to her 'neighborhood boyfriend' who barked the hell out of me whilst I was strolling along the street and met both of them together.

But seriously, too much attachment to dogs is the reason why zoophilia is on the rise.

Btw, I'm weary of singles that keep dogs as pet.
