LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - If a dog ever looks at someone with an adorable head tilt, researchers have a better idea of what’s going on inside their head.
A new study suggests it may be the pup’s way of processing relevant, meaningful stimuli.
Scientists said it basically means dogs might be trying to focus or recall information from a memory, like the name of a favorite human or toy.
The furry facts were published recently by Hungarian researchers in a scientific journal called Animal Cognition.
It’s the first study that examines the reason for head tilting in dogs.
