Abstract

With the help of animal behavioralists, parallels have been drawn between domestic dogs and cats and their wild cousins. In some respects, social behavior in domestic animals has remained similar to characteristics found in wild animals. General observations of social conduct have been examined. By identifying social patterns that exist in both wild and domestic animals, a more detailed knowledge of pet mannerisms has been acquired.
