Dogs Capable of Assessing Good and Bad People

Science Innovations

New research has revealed that dogs are able to distinguish between good and bad people.

The study was conducted by a research team of Akiko Takaoka of Kyoto University, Japan on 34 dogs. The study was conducted in three rounds, the first round an empty container was kept with hidden food inside. In the second round, the container was empty and in the third round even though there was food inside the container the dogs refused to rush towards it. This showed that dogs had become suspicious of the moves made by the evaluators.

It takes only a short while for the dogs to understand whether someone is trust worthy or not.
