How did they find out about it?
Researchers at the Kyoto University in Japan tested three groups of 18 dogs. They found out that dogs can sense, when a strangers intension was mean to the owner. The Dogs were even less likely to then accept goodies from the mean person.
Fujita, one of the researchers said “We discovered for the first time that dogs make social and emotional evaluations of people regardless of their direct interest.”
The conclusion is: Dogs dont act solely out of self-interest, otherwise there would be no differences between the groups.
