Woof Woof!


As you’re petting another dog, do you ever wonder what your dog is thinking? Does he feel anything as he watches you love on another dog?

Recent studies by Dr. Christine Harris, a UC San Diego emotion researcher, show that dogs do in fact care. They used a stuffed dog that did real actions, such as wagging it’s tail, to grab the real dog’s attention. It was found that 72% of dogs expressed jealous behavior, including pushing the owner and acting aggressive toward the fake dog.

There is said to be a theory that as dogs evolved with humans that gave them high amounts of attention, they adapted these habits.

A way to help the attention seeking problem is simple: don’t give it the attention it want. The pet will soon realize that pushing or nagging their owner isn’t getting them anywhere.
