Many consider that We, Horses, are not capable to become attached to you, People. To us supposedly all the same who is nearby (and it is better than you, People were not near at all). It, of course, not so. Horses, as well as all social living beings, are capable to form attachment – and to other Horses, and to People. Another thing is that the attachment is different. It, by the way, and your, Human relations concerns.

 Horse and person

Alas, nobody tested attachment of Horses (and suddenly We would surprise you?), and here with Chelovekami (more precisely, with human cubs) and Dogs such tests were carried out.

Your Cub or the Dog were brought into the unfamiliar place with a set of toys. The parent (or in case of the Dog the owner) was in the room, left it. And still there was a Stranger who came into the room in the presence of the parent (or the owner) and into his absence and tried to communicate with a cub (or the Dog).

I became clear that the attachment happens 2 types:
  1. Safe (reliable) attachment . In this case cubs (or Dogs) quickly enough began to study the room and toys and quietly perceived presence of the Stranger. Of course, they awfully worried if the parent (or the owner) left, but when the important Person came back, joyfully welcomed him and quickly again calmed down.
  2. Unsafe (unreliable) attachment . It was divided, in turn, into 3 types:
  • The avoiding attachment : a detenok (or the Dog) were angry when the parent (or the owner) left and avoided it after return.
  • Ambivalent attachment : the child (or the Dog) very much worried when they were left, aspired to the important Person when he came back, on the one hand, tried to achieve caress, and with another – avoided in attempts to come into contact.
  • Dezorganizovanno-dezoriyentirovannaya attachment : the child (or the Dog) worked randomly and it is contradictory, avoided the important Person, looked for contact, did not show any emotions.

It became clear that safe attachment – consequence of gentle, sympathetic and cordial relations a detenka with the parent or Dogs with the owner.

And further proved that such detenka (and Dogs) more inquisitive, independent, persistent in achievement of the goals, social, are full of enthusiasm, are far better ready to interact and much better study.

The unsafe attachment was connected with the indifferent, unsympathetic or rigid attitude of the owner towards the Dog or the parent to a detenka. Such children (and Dogs) are hyperactive, show behavior problems (including shyness and/or aggression) and symptoms of a chronic stress, badly study.

Scientists made experiments with Rats and found out that the chronic stress (which, I will remind – result of unsafe attachment) breaks development of a brain. In particular, destroys parts of a brain which are responsible for a fright, a dream and wakefulness, learning, concentration of attention and memory. Same fully treats Chelovekam, Dogs and other Animals.

my conclusion is unambiguous: the reliable attachment is some kind of protection against violations of functioning of a brain, unreliable attachment – a direct way to emergence of problems.

For this reason the quality of your relations with your Animals is so important (any!) and detenka. It lays the foundation for formation and development of their personality.

And draw own conclusions and make decisions.
