Dogs can tell when people are lying to them, study finds

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A team of researchers at the University of Vienna has found that dogs can sometimes tell when people are lying to them. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the group describes experiments they conducted with hundreds of dogs, and what was learned about their ability to detect deception in unknown people.

Adult humans have been found to engage in mental state assessments of others. People determine, based on various clues, the truthfulness of other people, for example. In this new effort, the researchers wondered if the same might be true of dogs. To find out, they carried out simple experiments with 260 dog volunteers of various breeds.

Dogs read your mind and know your thoughts.   I think most animals can.   When I was quite a bit younger my family and I would go horseback riding.   If I got scared on the horse my dad would tell me to try not to be scared because the horse would pick up on those thoughts.

I find it hard to believe considering how bad some tend to be at knowing whether or not a ball was actually thrown :w00t:
