What happens when you yawn? If that causes your dog to yawn, give him a treat. He's one smart pooch.
Reuters reports that some dogs find human yawns contagious, which suggests they are a rudimentary capacity for empathy, something scientists thought only applied to humans and chimpanzees. Fully 72 percent of 29 dogs tested by British researchers at London's Birkbeck College were so sensitive to human yawns that seeing one made them yawn in response.
Writing in the journal Biology Letters, lead study author Atsushi Senju said this behavior showed dogs were skilled at reading human social cues and "may relate to their capacity for empathy."
