Results for - Scientists Confirm That Dogs Can Sense Bad People
2,790 voters participated in this survey
1. Do you have a dog?
2. Whether you're a good person or not can determine whether dogs like you. Science has proven that dogs actually act differently toward different types of people. If you notice your dog doesn't like someone, you might want to listen to what he has to say before becoming that person's friend. Do you believe dogs have a good "sense" about whether someone is a good or bad person or not?
3. A study, published in Neuroscience and Behavior Reviews, shows that dogs know when a person is not helpful to their owners. This is because dogs can tell when a person is kind or not, even if they are normally kind to the dog in question. And, chances are, they probably also judge you for your behavior. Do you feel that you are a good judge of character?
4. A case in point in the study was that dogs are more willing to respond to someone who helps another person out as opposed to ignoring someone who refuses. This was observed in an experiment where someone was asked to help open a pickle jar. The dogs took a treat from the person who helped but refused a treat from the person who didn't. Do you think it's funny that a dog will refuse to take a treat from someone that they don't think is a good person?
5. There was another experiment that showed dogs are a good judge of character, but for the sake of survey length, I'm not including that one. The bottom line: If your dog doesn't like someone, there is probably a reason. Hopefully this is not the relationship between you and your dog. Some common ways your dog can show its displeasure with you or another person is by the following behavior: Excessive barking; Growling; Refusing to play with; Not wagging its tail; Prefers spending time with someone else... Do you know someone that a dog does not like and displays one of the signs above when that person is around?
