New Study Reveals the Best Way to Praise a Dog
Want to tell your pet he's a good dog? Don't call him a good dog! A study published in the journalBehavioral Processesfound that actions speak louder than words to man's best friend: Dogs prefer an ear scratch over vocal praise, no matter who's giving it. So pet owners may just be wasting their breath when they're dishing out kind words.
The pooches, which included shelter dogs, owned dogs with strangers and owned dogs with their masters, always preferred physical interaction a spoken compliment. In fact,dogs were so uninterested invocalpraisethat it was as though there was no human-doggie interaction at all. "Both shelter and owned dogs spent significantly longer in proximity to the experimenter when the interaction was petting compared to vocal praise," the study reports.
The big winner, though, is always food. In an earlier study done by the same authors, they reported that while both petting and food have positive effects on dog behavior, most of the pooches preferred getting fed to being pet.
As the study says, giving your dog a nice scratch every now and then strengthen bond and improve your pet's social behavior.So save the kind words for someone who can understand them!
