Why dogs love their owners: A Study

I just checked this post out….. It says that the reason why dogs bond so well with their owners is actually the hormone oxytocin that is produced both in them and in us. According to a study conducted at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, dogs that were given extra doses of oxytocin performed better compared to those given simple saline spray.

“Both dogs and humans usually produce more oxytocin as they interact. For dogs, the hormone makes them evolved into being the perfect human companion because the bond makes them better at “reading” their owners.”

And here’s the video that was provided by the post:


What a cool study, right? Personally, I love dogs (they’re so adorable! ❤ ) so I really loved reading about this revelation… had to share! 😀
