You can often hear that a pet is very similar to its owner, and often such a statement is difficult to argue. Perhaps this is because animals love their owners very much and they try to adopt their habits.
Scientists have found that the character of the owner has a great impact on the pet’s behavior. The owners who are sociable and lively have kind and active dogs, neurotic people have aggressive ones.
Experienced veterinarians agree that owners resemble their pets not only in lifestyle and appearance but also in habits. It’s no secret that not only do we raise our pets, but they raise us, and sometimes even more successfully. Apparently, our relationship with our animals is not a one-way game.
The fact that animals are like us both in appearance and in character allows us to coexist more comfortably and form a real emotional intimacy. That’s why the words of Henry Shaw are so close: “The dog is the only creature that loves you more than you love yourself.”
