Think your dog totally gets you? Well you're totally right!
A recent Learning & Behavior study indicates that canines may have an innate ability to read humans mental and emotional status!
This idea of "canine telepathy" has been suggested before–often, pet owners comment on how their dog seems to know what they're thinking.
Researchers from the University of Florida found that the animals may be born with the ability to perceive and react to human emotion.
They found that the wolves were "sensitive to human attentional state under some conditions." That evidence suggests, for the first time, that dogs are born with the capacity to read minds, so to speak.
The findings did indicate, however, that increased exposure to humans (as in the case of domestic dogs) improves a dog's ability to sense attentiveness.
So.. watch how much you think about cats!
