The Dog Encyclopedia- for free


The history of the dog, and its transformation from wolf to domestic animal, goes back to prehistoric hunter-gatherer communities. In these rudimentary communities wolves scavenged for garbage around the camp and were a valuable source of hides and meat. Wolves also inadvertently raised the alarm when intruders or outsiders approached the camp.

One of the reasons why humans were the first to include wolves in their households may be that humans are generally programmed to keep animals as playmates and status symbols. The furry little wolf cubs may have been as attractive to our ancestors as they are to anyone today. As social animals, wolves may have easily transitioned between pack ties and human ties.
