Do Dogs Get Jealous?

DOG JEALOUSIf you pay attention to another dog, will your pouch get pissed? The answer is yes he will! Researchers at the University of California, San Diego asked the owners of 36 small dogs to pay attention to  an animated stuffed dog. They also were to give lots of attention to a plastic jack-o’-lantern bucket and read a children’s book aloud, all while ignoring their pet. More than three-quarters of the dogs pushed or touched their owners or the object when it appeared that their master was praising another dog. Some even snapped at the fake puppy the study said.

So when you’re in the dog park paying attention to another persons dog, be aware that your dog is feeling a little slighted. He may even give you the “evil eye.” So shower him with love and affection!

Remember, your pets count!
