Since early in human history, people have developed a special bond with dogs. As pack animals, dogs have an inherent sense of loyalty to their pack and have a need for companionship, love, security, and friendship. As humans, we share many of these same needs. Over the years, this has led to dogs cementing their place right by our sides, as man's best friend. While we as humans view our dogs as our friends, they view us as members of their pack.
