About This Quiz

Dogs and humans have been companions for thousands upon thousands of years, since dogs effectively domesticated themselves on the steppes of Central Asia. Since those early days, dogs and humans have developed a complex and mutually beneficial relationship. Dogs help humans hunt. Dogs help humans maintain and guide their herds. Dogs protect property and guard sleeping camps. Dogs are our workout companions. Dogs are our silent therapists. Dogs are indeed our very best friends. We even see ourselves in our dogs, ascribing human characteristics, even ones personal to us or to our family members, to dogs in our bonding efforts.

In all of this thinking about how dogs are like us, have you ever considered how much humans are like dogs? Dogs learned the behaviors that separate them from other canids by spending time with us, so their way of being is as much a reflection of us, as our behaviors, developed in the presence and example of dogs, are influenced by them. When you look at your pup, do you think "that dog is like me" or do you think "I am like that dog"? It's time to parse out the differences.
