There are countless number of reasons why dogs are better than cats. But research has shown another reason why dogs are number one
Dogs can recognise how you are feeling just by looking at you. Yup that’s right they can recognise human emotion.
In an experiment dogs were shown pictures of people with different emotions such as anger and happiness and were made to hear a recording of someone who either matched the picture or didn’t.
The dogs responded more to the images which matched the recording.
Stanley Coren, a psychology professor at the University of British Colombia said:
“What this does is it shows that dogs glue those things together and look for consistency in order to read the emotions”
