Most of dog lover love too much their four-legged friends that they treat them like if they were baby dog. In addition, some other dog lover spend their time with their dog rather than a friend or family member.
Researchers from Northwestern University of Colorado have shown that many dog lover feel more empathy with a dog than a human. The study was developed by 260 students. They read a fake new about a beaten adult and dog. The result was surprising showing that most of the students would prefer to save the dog rather than the human mentioned in the fake news.
In the given fake news, the victim was attacked by someone and was left without conscious with one broken leg and some other injuries. The study in fact revealed that most of dog lover felt empathy for dogs than the human.
Another fact that scientists have found is that dog lover do not have problems spending money in their dogs, most of them are willing o spend as much money as possible o see their pups happy. Moreover, the study demonstrated that dog lovers are willing to donate money to charity to help baby dog rather than humans.
A study was realized with 300 people, they were not told what the experiment was about in order to get an accurate result. In the experiment they were asked to choose that if the had 100 dollars how much money would they donate to help baby dog and how much to help humans. The result average gotten was that if they had 100 dollars 70 were going to be for helping baby dog and 30 for humans.
The study showed why dog lover is so attached to their dogs. baby dog makes more facial movements when a human is paying attention to them, that was what researching team said.
In addition, some others prefer to spend their time with their dog rather than a friend or family member.
What was thought by the team before was that animal facial expressions were unconscious However, the study showed that dogs raise their eyebrows and even make their eyes bigger when they are trying to get attention from their owners or a person.
It was also shown that the presence of treats did not have impact on the expressions the dogs made, suggesting it wasn’t about them turning on the charm to get extra snacks. In spite of that, the researchers concluded it could be a route of communication between the owner and dog.
The study did not surprise animal trainers. They knew it or were expecting for the result. Russell Hartstein said: Dogs give us their unconditional love, and many times people built stronger bonds with their pug than another human.
And here are the Top 5 reasons we love Dogs:
Dog owners are, shall we say, a special breed. We share that special love of dogs and know how important they are to our lives. But why, exactly do we love dogs so much? There are a lot of answers to this question (and unique ones for each dog!), but here are the top five.
People who keep dogs live longer on average than those who do not. This is not some kind of pro-canine campaigning fantasy. It is a simple medical fact that the calming influence of the company of a friendly pet animal reduces blood pressure and therefore the risk of heart attack.
There are many ways that having a dog is good for our health. People with dogs are shown to have less heart problems because they get regular exercise from walking their pets. Having a dog improves our mood and reduces stress which in turn means lower blood pressure. Spending just 15-30 minutes with your dog can help you feel more calm and relaxed, reducing stress and increasing happiness. Playing with your pup increases your brain’s levels of dopamine and serotonin, both of which are neurotransmitters associated with pleasure and tranquility. Dogs even seem to be able to detect the smell of cancer in humans.
