Clever Dog Finds A Way To Steal Treats Out Of The Toaster Oven On The Counter
To say this pup has some good problem solving skills is quite the understatement. Apparently, that means this clever canine is head and shoulders above her fellow dogs. According to a study, dogs' increasing domestication and dependence on humans has taken a toll on their ability to figure things out. During their research, they placed dingoes, wolves, and domesticated dogs in front of a bowl of food, with a fence in between. While dingoes and wolves quickly found the door that led to the food, dogs refused to stray from where they started and barked. While they fell behind in that task, dogs did prove superior in another, which is communication with humans. It's this skill that gives pups their reputation as "man's best friend."
