How dogs communicate with us

Eye contact. Dogs tend to keep the owner in sight 24 hours a day and catch their eyes as often as possible. Look at your pet. If the expression of his face is calm, and the jaw is relaxed, scratch him behind the ear, he will be extremely happy about it! By the way, Japanese researchers are convinced that there is a connection between the dog’s eye contact with the owner and the level of the attachment hormone (oxytocin). Make “warm” eye contacts with your pet more often, and your friendship will only grow stronger!
How do dogs communicate with us?
The dog brings you things. No, not on command. And spontaneously, of his own free will. For example, pets often bring toys to their owners. We regard this gesture as an invitation to play, but in fact they give us a present. It is believed that the echoes of hunting instincts work this way. The dog used to bring prey to the owner, but now it brings what, in its opinion, can please him. And let her choice not surprise you!
The dog is hunched and compressed. If you see that the dog is trying by all means to seem smaller than its size, there is only one conclusion: it is very afraid of something and needs your protection!
The dog is leaning on you. This behavior means two things. Firstly, she trusts you unconditionally. And secondly, for her you are a reliable support, and next to you she feels safe. This gesture says a lot about how the dog relates to the owner.
How do dogs communicate with us?
The dog seeks to climb onto your bed. You think your dog just likes delicate sheets? There it was! In fact, this is another attempt to get closer to you! Even if you are not at home at the moment, the dog will gladly lie on your pillow to better smell your smell.
Tell me, what gestures does your dog use? How does she demonstrate her affection for you?
are we getting pets or are pets getting us? What is hidden behind the gentle purr of the cat, the pitiful eyes of a faithful dog or the inclination of the head of a parrot? Still think these are geniuses of manipulation? There it was! Read about the three most skilled manipulators in the world in our article.

Top 3 brilliant manipulators

Our Top 3 is opened by birds: parrots, canaries and other domesticated birds. If you think that these pets are uncommunicative and not human-oriented, you do not know them well!

In practice, every self-respecting parrot knows how to lure the owner into the game, rob him of a delicious treat or beg for a walk around the apartment. And for this he has a lot of different tricks!

The bird can stretch on one foot and look at you carefully, tilting its head slightly and causing a storm of emotion. Or it can go into an aggressive attack: persistently encircle you, seeing your favorite treat in your hand, or grab it on the fly.

So much for the defenseless bird!

How do pets manipulate us?
We give the second place in the Top to the dogs!

The story goes that dogs are man’s best friends. However, this does not prevent them from skillfully manipulating us!

Dogs have a great effect on visual reactions, feel our weaknesses and are able to imitate our behavior. Your dog can be perfectly obedient to you and behave completely indecently with other members of your family.

Reception, proven over the years: to seize the moment when the owner is not nearby, select the “weak link” from those around, put his head on his knee during dinner and look as plaintively as possible. The treat is sure to arrive! So claim later that your “well-mannered” dog never begs for food!

Harvard scientists, and with them scientists from the University of Vienna Psychology, are convinced that dogs intentionally imitate human facial expressions and gestures.

Even if your four-legged friend is perfectly executing commands, do not be sure that you are the master of the situation!

How do pets manipulate us?
And, of course, cats come first! These cute villains knelt all of Ancient Egypt! And if you think about it, we worship cats today.

The power of cats over us is unlimited. We often seek their attention, we are touched by a velvet purr, admire the cat’s grace and become completely inadequate when we catch our pets sleeping in funny poses!

Scientists from the University of Vienna are convinced that cats intentionally establish a close emotional relationship with their owners and use different tactics for this. They can behave like children, slightly hint, indiscreetly demand and, of course, act up. In addition, treacherous pets never just do it! Be sure if the cat gently pokes into your hand – it needs something from you!

But geniuses of manipulation would not be themselves without a secret weapon. In cats, these are sounds! Studies conducted at Cornell University showed that the range of sounds for communicating with humans in cats is much wider than for communicating with relatives. These manipulators produce sounds of a certain tonality that are accurately interpreted by our ear.
