The domestic dog as a companion of humans:

  • Domestication took place about 15,000 to 100,000 years ago
  • the wild progenitor is the wolf
  • there are around 500 million domestic dogs worldwide
  • in Germany alone, 9 million live as pets


The numbers are alarming. At the beginning of November 2021, a total of 37 birds tested positive for the H5N1 virus. In the Elbmarschen in the district of Pinneberg there is talk of 240 dead animals – only noticed in the last week! The majority of infected birds would be wild geese.

For dog owners, this means that they should always keep an eye on their four-legged friends and their surroundings when going for a walk. Nabu also initially advises against free outlets. The owner can only intervene as quickly as possible if dogs are kept on a leash.
