Dogs have become part of our lives; we are living with them, benefiting from the mutual company. In fact, dogs teach us how to be more compassionate, patient, and fun-loving. The ability of a man’s best friend to bark at the postman and look for a stick is already a test of intelligence. But they can be much brighter than that. Although, however, there are also some things we misunderstand from these friends.
You are already familiar with the guilty face, whether or not you have a dog because it takes up a good amount of all Internet quality gifs. If you have not seen her, I suggest that you take a break and look for her, under the warning that you are touching and very addictive to see. Dogs put on that face when they pee in inappropriate places or break things they should not and they will bowhead show huge sad eyes. Researchers explain it comes from long before dogs were domesticated; Is an essential part of canine survival called “arch of apology.”
They also observed that wolves – dog relatives – also adopt this stance after doing something that the rest of the herd finds socially unacceptable. Dogs have only inherited this behavior and use it for any infraction for which they can get punished. As social animals, who long for harmonious integration in the group, abandonment or isolation is painful for them, and they will consider this as punishment.
The study says that dogs are as susceptible to “emotional contagion” with humans as they are with members of their species. By making them listen to recordings of positive and negative sounds of two other dogs (playful barking, howling, etc.) and human (laughing or crying); And only listening to these changed their behavior. It indicates that the dogs recognize the different valences of emotional sounds. That is, they assume what they hear and know how to differentiate between sadness and happiness. Also, dogs tended to behave in the same way in response to the sound of a particular emotion, regardless of whether it was canine or human, which means that they equally understand the sadness or human happiness of their kind.
In fact, there is material that demonstrates that dogs know the words and intonation of the human voice, although the way it says it is what matters when it comes to communicating with them. They probably do not understand the message, but they respond to the tone whether it is good or bad. They experience a sense of reward when words and intonation indicate praise, no matter what they say.
Surely you have ever thought that certain pets look like their owners, the sensitivity, and ability to show, often make them take elements of our personality and copy them. Dogs recognize and integrate the emotional information of humans and adjust their behavior to those signals of communication.
