The relationship between humans and dogs goes as back as 14,000 years ago, when custom had it that the dog and his owner would be buried together. And while this tradition may raise eyebrows nowadays, most dog owners have shed a tear while watching the movies Hachiko – A Dog’s Story, Marley and me, Beethoven and the list goes on.
The true affection that people have had for dogs was shown to also date very long ago. Archaeological discoveries made in Siberia showed cases in which dogs were granted person-hood and were found buried in the same ground with humans.
It is only natural that when faced with such a strong relationship, you, as a proud dog owner, would like to make sure that you show reciprocity to your trusted companion.
