There are many kinds of homes that are comfortable, but put a dog in one and it becomes cozy. Just like that! There is much evidence in everyday life of the special bond that humans share with canines and one doesn’t have to look far for examples of pet dogs in loving relationships with humans and their families. Of course, the reasons for a pet in the home are as many as the varieties of dogs that are there. Some want a guard for the home, others want a friendly companion. Dogs assist the police in law enforcement, finding crime scene evidence, detecting bombs and drugs, and even finding missing persons; there are ‘seeing eye’ dogs for the blind where they are more than a friendly presence. Mountain dogs like the Gaddi Kutha of the Gharwals of India are selected for their sheep herding instincts and the ability to warn and guard against bears and other predators.
The Kanni of the hot southern plains of India are slender sighthounds which are excellent bird dogs. The Indian Pariah, distinct from the mixed breed or mongrel, is another clever, adaptable breed of dog which can be trained for almost any type of work or play. The mongrel, too, is one of the easiest and successful types of dog that cohabit with humans. Dogs are animals first and foremost and have instincts that are common to the species. One of the most important is that they follow for the pack leader. In the canine world the alpha male is the benign tyrant. The other members of the pack completely submit to the guidance of the leader. The alpha female has tremendous influence over the male top dog and complete control of the puppies. This structure ensures a congenial clan that lives together, each member looking out for the other. However, the family structure is dynamic and young males regularly test their strength against each other and may challenge the alpha male occasionally. The successful male retains or inherits the alpha position, ensuring his place at the head of the pack.
