The Way Your Date Treats Your Dog Says Everything You Need to Know About Them
In a study from Kyoto University, dogs were first offered treats by strangers who helped their humans, and then offered treats by strangers who refused to help their humans. The dogs repeatedly snubbed the rude strangers.
But it’s not just about how your dog thinks your date treats you. It’s also about how you think your date treats your dog.
Justin Garcia, an evolutionary biologist and scientific advisor for Match.com, told National Geographic, “Because humans are a cooperative-breeding species, treatment of a pet can signal whether they will be engaged with offspring and with family social duties, whether that means taking care of you or you and your children.”
