New Studies Show Humans Love Dogs More Than Other Humans

McAleese adds dog trainers have told her how they struggle to have patience or empathy for the owner, yet have endless patience for the dog. “Why? The dog can’t speak up for itself, so they are the dog’s advocate,” she said.

The study results didn’t surprise certified behaviorist and animal trainer, Russell Hartstein either.  He told I Love My Dog: “Dogs provide unconditional love and many times people form stronger bonds with their pet than with another human.” Click Open or Arrow Button to Complete Read

  1. I absolutely love dogs and animals more then most people hands down I’d take a dog over a kid any day of the week but I’m sure humane will use this soft spot against other humans case in point!!$$???

  2. With dogs you get unconditionally love 24 / 7. With humans they are fake, they don’t do what they say and can change in the blink of an eye. Yes I prefer dogs 100 percent over humans any day…..

  3. Interesting article and yet I bet there’s a very high percentage of empathetic people that would carry on eating animals as soon as they crave a burger, bacon sandwich or a hot ‘dog’.

  4. OUR FURBIES DO NOT LIE, STEAL FROM
    YOU. >
    WELL > MAYBE A T-BONE OR TOO. LOL>
    BUT THEY DON’T STEAL SOMETHING OF VALUE. & THEY DON’T CHEAT, NOR PLAY ALL THE NOT SO NICE HEAD TRIPS & STAB FRIENDS NOR THEIR FRIENDS IN THE BACK. OUR FURBIES LOVE US WITHOUT THE PHONINESS.
    THEY SENSE HOW WE FEEL & ALWAYS BY OUR SIDE > UNLIKE ALOT OF MATES WHO WALK OUT THE DOOR w/0 CONCERN.

  5. I totally agree I thought I was the only one to feel this way .but dare you say it and you get people saying your a bad person to say that .I definitely pick a dog or cat over any human being. How many dogs or cats or any animal do any hurt or damage.humans are class at it

  6. That is a little harshly exaggerated. My brothers and parents = I love either more or equal to my 4dogs. More $$$ Are given to Cancer, American Heart Association, etc Than Any Animal Charity.

  7. Yes!! I cried more to a dog than the death of a human! even if they are familiar! The death of the people I forget soon! The death of a dog makes me cry forever and I carry it in my heart forever !! ❤️

  8. I believe that man was given the dog to be man’s best friend. So that we could learn from them what unconditional LOVE looks like so that we could be more like Jesus. Unfortunately we think we’re the smart ones and that the dog learns from us. Think about it… why else would a dog be called dog and man’s best friend… What’s doG spelled backwards anyway!!! I’m gonna go give my doG a huge hug!

    • I totally agree . I am autistic and my dogs have taught me so much more than any professional’s in the psychiatric profession or their drugs ever could. Because of my mental health I was not accepted into churches cause they believed I must be demonic and needed deliverance cause of my love for nature I could see God in everything soooooo beautiful.bible says everything that has life has the breath of Jesus in . So in my isolated existence God brought my first dog and my first teacher and the subject he was gifted to teach me was how to be a human .

  9. It’s hard to tell whose real nowadays, but for most parts, a bulldog is gonna be a bulldog and a labrador is gonna be a labrador, I can’t say the same for a Peter or a Julia.

  10. its funny people think its horrible to eat a dog..but ok to eat cow,pig,chickens, deer..makes no sense..its all animals..btw i don’t own pets..

  11. And there’s nothing wrong with that!
    I mean on one hand you got unconditional love,that inspire us to be better humans 🤷‍♂️ on the other hand you got a paranoid monkey with anxiety. 😝

  12. I am an avid dog lover… with three furry children myself…I would do anything for them.. humans not so much! Pets for me specifically dogs are the epitome of true ,unconditional love 💕 Humans are neither! So I truly choose dogs over humans any day!

  13. The reason is very simple: dogs (no matter the age) and small children are HELPLESS and dependent on us – they need our care for survival. That is why news of abuse hits us harder – you should never harm someone who is innocent and incapable of defense. Whereas adult humans are/should be capable of taking care of themselves.
    Exceptions being brutal group attacks on a single adult human, for which we also feel more empathy than when we read a story of a one-on-one attack.
    The level of empathy for a crime depends on a level of unfairness. A child and dogs cannot defend themselves.

  14. Personally I have more sympathy and empathy for a child and puppies/dogs because they are helpless and can’t defend themselves from a brutal attack.
    Humans can call 911 for help..a young child or dog doesn’t have this ability.

  15. Loving dogs has a lot to do with NOT eating meat!! What is the difference between a pig, a cow or a dog. All feel pain, and emotion and love for their family. All suffer the same!!!!

  16. Wow, I’m shocked that every comment is choosing a dog over a fellow human being. This is a sign of society failing and it’s sad that people aren’t more caring of each other. Does everbody who cares more about a pet over another person really want me to save their dog over them if they are both trapped in a burning vehicle?
