Dog Yoga

Judging from this adorable video, it seems our canine companions want to be just like us. You may be surprised to find out that this is somewhat true. Dogs have a tendency to emulate us, even when the actions aren't in their best interest.

In a recent study, researchers found that dogs involuntarily mimic some recurrent human body movements. One stunning study instructed people to open a sliding door in front of a dog. Next, they used a different set of people to demonstrate opening the door on all fours using their heads.

The catch was that the dogs were given a treat for opening the door with their heads. Surprisingly, the dogs were more inclined to use their paws, despite the treats.
