Dogs don’t trust liars!
Research shows dogs use their experience with particular human beings to determine whether they can be trusted. They size-up individuals as quickly as a 5 year old and can distinguish between people who lie to them and those who tell the truth! So, the next time you call your dog promising a treat, you better deliver. And when you tell him to get off the furniture, make sure he stays off! Otherwise, he probably won’t listen the next time. The old adage holds true, ‘no one believes a liar, even when he’s telling the truth.’
