Evidence for the relationship between man and dog

goes back to the very start of history.

Getting fed by man, made dogs loyal to humans.

But there were a number of reasons

to keep a dog in the Stone Age.


1. Dogs helped with hunting other animals.

They helped humans track animals,

flush them out of the undergrowth

and bring animals down.


2. Dogs acted liked babysitters,

protecting children from wild animal

while their parents would be away hunting.


3. Dogs gave off body heat,

warming up their homes

and acting like a blanket.
