AbstractThe domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) is the oldest domesticated animal. Urbanization and the breeding process have affected not only the appearance, but also behaviour, by intensifying or suppressing the original behaviour of dogs. The main purpose of this study was to show how human work and proper socialization of puppies affect the dogs’ breeding behaviour and their ability to create relations with other species. The experiment showed the influence of various environmental factors on the creation of mutual relations between pet animals. The research was based on an interview conducted with the owners of dogs. The study showed a relationship between the number of animals and the territory they occupy, and between individual traits: age, sex, etc. and relationships between members of the herd. When deciding to adopt other animals, especially the most popular ones such as dogs or cats, we should pay special attention to the temperament of the individual and its origin – including the socialization.
