Can dogs read our minds? Print E-mail
Friday, 13 May 2016 09:52

According to a study undertaken by Marseille University, dogs' behaviour towards strangers is based on their owner's response.  They looked at 58 dogs and their owners and found that the dog's gaze alternated between the owner and the stranger when meeting; if the owner retreated the dogs looked at the stranger sooner and took more time before their first contact than if the owner approached the stranger.  Males were found to check their owner's reaction less than females.  Of course this does not really mean that dogs can read our minds - more that they they take their behavioural cue from ours.
