Brain Scan Shows That Dogs Really Are Man’s Best Friend

Humans and dogs have lived together for over 30,000 years, so it is only natural that they became best buddies. At least that is what most people refer to dogs as man’s best friend. Over the years we can definitely confirm that dogs have become more popular and even more beloved. In the United States, it is thought that 50% of every household has a dog.

It’s just that happy nature every dog has that we love so much: the tails thumping and their smiles. Even when dogs are up to no good: like stealing our pillows, do we really get mad? It definitely always seems that dogs love humans just as much, but as they cannot talk, no one really knew. Until now, when due to brain imaging technology we have been able to receive an inside picture of what goes on in a dog’s mind.

Scientists have been studying dog brains and the results will be very comforting, dogs do indeed love us back. In fact, they believe humans to be part of their family. As it turns out, dogs will even rely on human affection more than seeking out their own kind.

The study has shown that dogs are completely devoted to humans, and this has been confirmed by how they process odors. Dogs navigate the world by smell so it is the best way to find out more about their social behaviors. The scientists introduced smells of humans they knew like their owner and also unknown humans.

A dog’s owner’s aroma actually caused its brain to activate the “reward” area and makes them even happier. But it did not end there, in fact, dogs prioritize all human smells even if they do not know them.

So dog owners no need to worry, everyone can be happy that no matter what face your dog is making or actions that are not clear – you can know your pet loves you. They love you like family, and that is the strongest bond that there can be.
