This first thing you’ll notice about Bentley is his beautiful chocolate coloring and those expressive button eyebrows! You can always tell what Bentley is thinking, and it’s usually about toys. Bentley loves a good session of tug-o-war and he rarely lets you win. He is also a big fan of water; whether it’s a kiddie pool or a lake, Bentley will be the first one in and last one out! When he’s not playing, Bentley loves to curl up in his igloo for a snooze- he hibernates like a bear in a cave! He also enjoys walks, back scratches, and knows basic commands.

Bentley does okay with other dogs, but his play-style could be considered rude to some (he’s a wrestler) so not every dog likes to play with him. Bentley can be nervous around strangers, but once he gets a proper introduction (preferably with yummy treats) he is such a goofball! As far as kids, Bentley prefers to party with the older crowd. He’s not a huge fan of the loud noises and sudden movements/grabbing that sometimes comes with younger children. With a confident owner, Bentley would be able to feel more secure in his surroundings and become the best version of himself- a loving and loyal companion!

Dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years and are now considered to be man’s best friend. However, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear and there are several theories about how they came to be domesticated.

One theory is that dogs were originally domesticated by early humans for their hunting abilities. Wolves, which are the ancestors of modern dogs, were likely attracted to the camps of early humans because of the abundance of food. As the wolves became more accustomed to human presence, they may have been domesticated and trained to assist in hunting.

Another theory is that dogs were domesticated for their ability to protect early human settlements. Wolves are naturally territorial animals and may have been tamed by early humans to serve as guard dogs for their camps and homes.

There is also evidence to suggest that dogs were domesticated for their companionship. Early humans may have formed close bonds with wolves, eventually leading to the domestication of the animals.

Regardless of the exact reason for their domestication, it is clear that dogs have played a crucial role in human society for thousands of years. They have been used for a variety of purposes, including hunting, protection, and companionship. Today, dogs are kept as pets in nearly every corner of the world and are beloved by people of all ages.

In conclusion, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear, but it is likely that they were domesticated for their hunting abilities, protective nature, and companionship. Today, dogs continue to play a vital role in human society and are an important part of many people’s lives.
