I feel like this topic can go sooooo much deeper, into "what does desire to please MEAN?"

We can say dogs are selfish, but aren't all animals? Why do we strive to please other people? Would we do it if there was absolutely NOTHING in it for us? Are we born with the desire to make others happy, or do we try to please certain people that we find attractive or rewarding? Idk. I fully agree that dogs do what is rewarding and don't do what is not rewarding, but I feel that way about all animals. I also think that natural selection and breeding purebreds/working dogs definitely creates breeds that are prone to be eager to please and breeds that are prone to be independent survivors.
