Have you ever wondered why your dog might react aggressively to some people? Don’t jump to the conclusion that dogs can be cranky.
Scientists have found that a dog’s behavior can identify unfriendly people. Dogs are very sensitive animals and can easily distinguish a relaxed person from an angry one.
Experts have investigated one aspect that you may or may not have already been convinced of.
Dogs have a sixth sense, which is expressed in relation to people. And if an animal suddenly becomes less affectionate and sociable depending on the people around it, there is a logical explanation. An experiment was conducted in which dogs tried to identify a bad person.
Two situations were created for the dogs. The dog owner and two staff members were at the experiment.
The owner tried to open the food container and asked one of the employees for help, while the second employee was not yet involved in the process.
When the container was opened, the dog accepted food from both employees. In the second situation, one of the two employees refused to help the owner open the container, and the other did nothing.
The dog only accepted food from the second employee, and the employee who refused to help the owner was bypassed by the dog. Such was the dog’s attitude toward those people who refused to help.
Researchers have concluded that dogs behave in the same way that people do to other people. If there is a person around you who is growled at by a dog, that person has once treated you badly.
Dogs remember everyone well! Treat people well and then animals will treat you well, too.
