Do Dogs Get Jealous?

April 24, 2018

Scientists have spent a lot of time studying jealously among people...friends, lovers, familys and coworkers. Basically we use jealous as a natural instinct to protect our social relationships. But what about man (and woman's) best friend? Can dogs feel jealousy too?

In 2014, researchers at the Univerisity of California, San Diego conducted a study where dog owners treated a fake dog as if it were a real one. The study found that one-third of the dogs tried to physically get in between its owner and the fake dog; one-fourth of the dogs even snapped at the fake dog.

So it definitely sounds like your furry friend is capable of being green with envy, so make sure to show them lots of love
