Why do we like dogs so much?
A new study published in the Journal of Science reveals one reason why we feel so close to our furry companions: When humans and dogs look into each other's eyes, both get a boost of the feel-good hormone oxytocin, which is the same hormone behind the special bond between new parents and their babies.
Why do I like dogs more than humans?
People really do love dogs more than other humans, according to a new study. New research has shown people are more empathetic to dogs than adult humans. Only a baby human elicited more sympathy than an adult dog from study participants. This is because we see dogs as part of the family, rather than just pets.
Why do we fall in love with dogs?
There's even scientific evidence to back it up. According to a 2015 study published in the journal Science, both dogs and their owners show a boost in oxytocin (the hormone responsible for feelings of love and connection) when the dogs make “puppy eyes” at their owners.
Why do humans like to pet dogs?
'' Scientists believe that the major source of people's positive reactions to pets comes from oxytocin, a hormone whose many functions include stimulating social bonding, relaxation and trust, and easing stress. Research has shown that when humans interact with dogs, oxytocin levels increase in both species.
