Receptions for those who have always dreamed of understanding dogs

Приемы для тех, кто всегда мечтал понимать собак

The dog (lat. Canis lupus familiaris) is a pet, one of the most common (along with the cat) “companion animals”. Initially, the domestic dog was isolated into a separate biological species (lat. Canis familiaris) by Linnaeus in 1758, and in 1993 it was reclassified by the Smithsonian Institution and the American Association of Theriologists as a wolf (Canis lupus). From the zoological point of view, the dog is a placental mammal of the order of the predatory family of canids.

Dogs are known for their ability to learn, love of the game, social behavior. Special breeds of dogs have been developed, intended for various purposes: hunting, protection, traction of horse-drawn transport, etc., as well as decorative breeds (for example, lapdog, poodle). If necessary, the distinction by sex is used the terms "dog" ( male ) and "bitch" ( female ).
