since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
Going back to the 18th century, many artists painted families in front of their rural homes with dogs. I can think of Arthur Devis right away or John Singleton Copley. Beautiful, domestic, sound family values!No doubt the Victorian photos of well dressed citizens with their dogs were seen to be just as beautiful and sound. Of course I would say that because I love dogs. But perhaps most people did!
