Animals that are domesticated sustained a multi-generational relationship with humans. Humans will often control on their care and reproduction. The domestication of animals, alongside with plants, was a major cultural innovation. Domestication should not be confused with taming an animal, a wild-born animal with natural avoidance towards humans is reduced and accepts human presence. There are three different types of domestic animals.

Pets - Domestic animals that are mainly kept for a person's company or entertainment. (e.g. dogs, cats, hamsters, rabbits, and guinea pigs)

Livestock - Domestic animals that are farmed for goods. (e.g. cattle, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, ducks, geese, and turkeys)

Working animals - Domestic animals that are trained to do tasks such as transportation. (e.g. horses, donkeys, and camels)

Note: Just because an animal can be kept as a pet, livestock, or a working animal does NOT automatically make it a domestic animal (e.g. numerous species of reptiles, amphibians, tropical birds, fish, and invertebrates have been kept as pets, but despite some being captive-bred, many individuals are similar to their wild counterparts.) However, with that being said, if the animal is semi-domesticated, then they can count (e.g. common quail).
