To say that we love our dogs is putting it mildly, really. We give them baths, clothes, and even pedicures (if we have some extra cash to burn). Basically, we treat our four-legged friends—with their wet noses, panting tongues and soulful eyes—like one of us.
And what’s wrong with that?
Some people would argue that domesticated dogs aren’t any different from their wild wolf ancestors. If you give them raw meals, that’s fine with them. If you give them cooked food, that’s fine too. So why bother giving them all natural, holistic dog foods?
Dogs Aren’t Humans
The proponents of the “dogs can eat anything” idea should take a closer look at the streets. There, you’ll see poor, unfortunate and abandoned canines roaming around and surviving on leftovers. It’s not uncommon for stray dogs to have mange, or to look as though their skins are barely clinging to their skeletons.
If they truly have the killer instincts of their ancestors, then why are they just “getting by”, instead of actually living?
The answer is that they’ve adapted to the human lifestyle. The longer they live around us, the more they become like us. And the more they become like us, the more they deserve humane treatment. That’s why we keep the ingredients for their holistic dog foods all natural and healthy.
Of course, there’s always a truckload of reasons why they’ll never truly become “human”. They can’t speak, use tools, or analyze the mysteries of the universe like we can…you know, pesky reasons like that.
Granted, they still display the pack behavior of their ancestors. Skilled dog trainers often advise owners to assert themselves as “leaders of the pack” if they want to control their canine companions. But that’s the point: we’ve become part of their pack, and, in their eyes, they’ve become part of ours.
So we at The Dog Bakery believe that there’s nothing wrong with humanizing our pets. There’s nothing wrong with choosing holistic dog foods instead of giving them mixed leftovers or commercial dog food. There’s nothing wrong with pushing your pet’s health at the top of your priority list.
