Your dog’s nose knows no bounds- and neither does your dog’s love for you. You have probably heard about dogs who sniff out bombs, drugs, or even coronavirus, but recent studies suggest that your scent means something to your dogs too. When a dog is deprived of food, and their owners, the dog will always choose to greet their owners before going to eat their food. Additionally, when we make eye contact with our dogs, both the handler and dog’s brain will release oxytocin (the “cuddle hormone”). These studies suggest that spending quality time with your dog, means more to them than giving them a tasty treat!
