Do Dogs Really Feel Guilty in those Photos?

Guilty Dog or Not?

There’s always a guilty dog photo appearing on my timeline somewhere and I started wondering if dogs do actually feel guilty or are we imposing human emotions where they simply don’t exist.

Have a little look at Psychology Today’s take on it and how a dog called Marla helped explain what is really going on. It’s worth reading right to the end.

If you are up for a little extra info another Psychology Today article also discusses which emotions dogs do feel. There’s a great image in the article that summarises nicely.
