The opposite of manipulation and control is harmonie and a mutual bond - most people call it love.

Where does it say that I own an animal?
You used the word "my", as in my wolf, my horse. Did you reason with these animals, and of their own accord, they joined your family? Or do they stay with you because you feed them? Did you pay some money to someone else and now they are yours? If it was a hypothetical, fine, but the point still stands.

If I would have said that I have a wife, you would interpret that as "you OWN a woman"?
No, I'd say you entered into a legally binding, contractual obligation, with a woman.

Context matters,
