Behavior researchers in Vienna have found that dogs do not differentiate between generous and stingy people. Their results were reported by MTI.
In studies led by Frederick Ring and Jim McGitrick, dogs rarely pressed the food button on those who received something earlier than those who received none. In addition, four-legged people were playing with equally generous people as they did with fewer donors, experts wrote in a study presented in the scientific journal PLOS One.
The researchers studied 21 dogs: Border Collie, Greyhounds, Australian Shepherds, Dachshunds, Hounds, Beagles and Mixtures. The dogs had to press a button to get a reward morsel.
They can see some people react with the push of a button while others don’t. They can then return the favor with the touch of a button. However, this was as infrequently the case for generosity as it was for those who refused food. They are not played with them very often later.
According to some studies, dogs offer advantages to their breeds and can differentiate between cooperative and uncooperative people. The research team at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Comparative Behavioral Sciences and Veterinary Medicine at the University of Vienna said the current research did not provide evidence that dogs can combine these two abilities.
Perhaps the tetrapod finds it strange to feed the people from whom they normally get food,
But it is also possible to conceivably not recognize the relationship between beneficial behavior of people and reward
