The objective of this study was to characterize the social behavior and the man-animal relationship of dogs attending a public park, in the South Zone of Recife, Pernambuco. For this purpose, questionnaires containing questions regarding the purpose of breeding, frequency of walking and the occurrence of abnormal behaviors were applied to sixty tutors of dogs attending a public park. The data showed that the breeding conditions and the interaction that the dogs maintain with the tutors have generated changes in the social behavior of these animals and the regularity of the walks has markedly reduced the levels of aggression and animal anxiety, promoting adequate socialization and welfare.
