It turns out when it comes to "reading" dogs specifically, women are better at it than men are. A new experiment published in the journal Royal Society of Open Science, researchers recorded the sound of nearly 20 dogs growing in various scenarios and had 40 participants attempt to identify the context of the growl. Overall, the participants were good at associating the growls with the correct root emotion, but both women and participants particularly experienced with dogs consistently scored higher on the task. So why were women better at it? Study authors write, that women have a "higher sensitivity to emotional stimuli" which "seems [to give them] an advantage in the recognition of context." (Pop Sugar)
That's my new puppy. He came home with the name, Karl. But my husband doesn't like that name for him. He calls him, "Buddy." I have to admit, he IS a buddy!
But Hubs is NOT allowed to train the puppy! I'm the trainer! Jeff will sneak a puppy food under the table to get the puppy to like him more. So he's not the best dog trainer, in my opinion. Both of them are coming along quite nicely with their training!!!
