Importance of Animals Rights

Animals, being conscious and responsive, have some similarities with human beings. There are many pet owners in this world who would quickly tell you that animals are unique and they are precious in their own identity, and they should certainly be loved and nurtured. Since animals are lower than human beings, there are many people who believe that they cannot feel and that we should not be so concerned about animal welfare.

There are many people who believe that animals have no basic right to life that they deserve. There are other who believe that humans are above all animals and makes a moral distinction between them. Lastly are those people who believe that animals cannot feel, sense, or experience the same things that a human can and that an animal should not be given the same status as a human. The wrong sense of righteousness and entitlement has influenced these belief systems. When the cognitive biases are overcome, the reality that all animals do have rights becomes significant.

Living in a clean, safe place where they can survive is another right that should be given to animals.

And when you are in-charge, you are responsible for its well-being. When it is hungry, you feed it. You take your dog out when it ones to relieve itself. When your dog becomes restless, you exercise and play with him. When it is sick, you bring it to the vet. In return however, your furry friend gives you back its loyalty, devotion and trust, unlike most human who takes these things as their entitlement. That is why some people get attached to their dogs which can be compared to an attachment with a best friend.

There is one area in having a dog companion which is somewhat neglected by many dog owners and that is the area of training their dogs.
