SORRY CULPRIT, YOU THINK DOGS DONT HAVE FEELINGS, your a superior being on this earth, and animals dont share the ... stress, it takes a toll on a dogs happiness and even immune system. a happy dog, is a healthy dog!

no need to shout, i'm very sure dogs experience happiness, and i'm sure that less stress will improve their life.
however, that does not make them equal to human children in their comprehension of, or ability to feel emotions.
and yes, of course i'm a superior being to a dog, i have opposable thumbs and can open dog food cans!

I disagree that you are superior to dogs. You have thumbs, do you have 1500psi jaw pressure? Can you run faster than 15mph? do you have 4 legs? Can you smell 1part per million? can you hear like a dog? no instead, you can open cans. The thumb statistic is overrated. We need to care for all living things, and IMO not put ourselves above any life. Humbility. All life has evolved into different directions. So your being a little human biased, which is to be expected from most people that dont understand enough about animals.

I pay close attention to animal psychology. Where you going wrong, is sure we are not equal, but we are not BETTER, just different. See dogs wont kill of their own species, so its not wise to say humans are better, we may not be around much longer. Sorry if i got excited, i just try to enlighten, sometimes im too harsh. I apologize. wolf

dogs won't kill their own species??? i beg to differ. wolves kill one another, as do dogs. and not infrequently. that was just an absurd statement to make, considering how much you profess to know about the psychology of the species.
while i cannot do the things dogs can do, i can invent and build machines to do those things for me. or i can just teach a dog to do them for me. can your dog build a can opener?
i understand enough about companion animals to know that as their superior, it is my responsibility to care for them in the most humane way possible. and expecting them to think like humans does them no good service, IMO.

just curious, but do you belong to PETA? your whole "animals are equal to humans" rant stinks of the AR movement.

I'm sorry, but I've lost track of whose "irratating" behavior is under discussion.

Would you cage your child in the basement? I suppose you would say, ITS A DOG, well i would say, ITS AS LIFE.

All together, everyone:

People are not dogs."

I think considering that the human race has colonized as many parts of the world as any other class, we are at least superior to those which have not, from an evolutionary & adaptability standpoint.
I also think that one must take the entire context into consderation when deciding whether one is "above" another. I may love my dog until the day I die and respect his right to live but if he bites someone and my choices are to lose my house or keep him alive, well, he's going to be euthanized.

See
dogs wont kill of their own species...

That's fundamentally untrue. Dogs WILL kill other dogs. So will every other animal on the planet, as well as various other living things that aren't classified as animals. I cannot think of a species that will not fight for dominance to the possible death, eat it's young, or hunt it's same species. Wolves will kill other wolves, mothers of many species will cannabalize their young under stress.

You mean you're not supposed to do that?
Even if you feed them every day?

No. If you cage them, you can't hook them up on a treadmill to generate electricity for the house.
