When it comes to dogs, do you think they prefer a nice belly rub or a delicious treat?
While the dog from the Beggin’ Strips commercial is always thrilled about devouring his treat, chances are he actually would have preferred a nice pat on the head, according to new research. One test had the dogs run through a Y-shaped maze. Their owner would stand on one end – and the other end would have a big bowl of food.
Most dogs weren’t tempted by the food and instead preferred to run to their owner for a belly rub.
