Study Claims Dogs Can be Pessimistic

Published on October 11, 2010 by   ·   No Comments
A study has gained new insight into the minds of dogs, discovering that those that are anxious when left alone also tend to show ‘pessimistic’ like behaviour.

The research by academics at the University of Bristol, and funded by the RSPCA is published in Current Biology (October 2010).  The study provides an important insight into dogs’ emotions, and enhances our understanding of why behavioural responses to separation occur.
