A new study discovered that there’s actually a possibility that our friendly, adorable puppers know when we’re lying to them. Ludwig Huber, Lucrezia Lonardo, and their colleagues from the Messerli Research Institute in Vienna, Italy found that dogs react differently to people who told them a lie without realizing it than they did to a person who knowingly lied to them. Majority of the 260 dogs involved in the study responded when they were told the truth rather than a lie. Learn more about the study here!
