At present, pets have occupied a large space among humans. Even dogs and cats have become children and family members. So much so, that the expert in canines Cesar Millán believes that this excess of affection has been transformed into animal abuse.

The love of animals makes people treat them as human beings and that is why you can see luxury restaurants for dogs, schools, birthday parties, clubs, hairdressers, clothing stores and other establishments dedicated to subjecting animals to activities Of people.

Cesar Millán explained that although the owners of dogs do this because they love their pets a lot, that does not mean that it is a good deal. On the contrary, humanizing animals makes them lose their identity, feel frustrated, anxious and insecure.

"The needs of the animal are not being taken into account. The human being has focused on being professional and not having a family. That's why they want to fill that gap with animals. But animals feel incomplete because they are not human beings and have other physical and psychological needs, "said Millán in an interview with the Mexican magazine Content.

Millán also said that 50 years ago the psychological problems of dogs were not so frequent because they were treated like animals and were in large spaces. Now they live in a house, bored and without physical activity.

"A street dog behaves better than one who lives in the house. - Added Millán - It has that challenge to survive, to seek food and develops all its capabilities. The dog that lives in the house has no work, no walk more than 15 minutes, no purpose.

This problem is already being analyzed by other experts such as the American Gary Francione, lawyer and animal rights specialist, who considers that the humanization of animals is morally negative and imposes unnecessary suffering. Francione considers that the owners impose them disrespectful human rules that go from the hairstyles to the makeup and that they attack the identity of the animal.

The debate now on the right of animals is to find out who lives happier: The vagabond dog that freely follows his instincts, without being subject to any rule, or one who is on the sofa of a house isolated from the rest of his fellows ?
