This work is rooted in the finding of a weak analytical perspective in social sciences to study the relationships between man and pet. The field of social sciences has often focused on the perceptions and symbolic meanings that the animal, example the canine mind, took when compared to the minds of men. In this document, the return of concrete practices of men and their dogs is not considered. Either the dog appears to be totally manipulated by men, or he himself is unconsciously the handler of the human mind. However, he never appears as a player with skill.
