    Study: Dogs Can Identify Liars, and They Don't Trust Them
    Pets may be more sophisticated than you think. Don't steer them wrong.

    One of the delights of watching the behavior of young dogs is the way that they approach almost every human being in a trusting and friendly manner. The same applies for young human children, who enter into social interactions with the idea that every human adult is trustworthy and has their best interests at heart. Of course, over time, the human child will learn that some people are more reliable and worthy of trust than others.

    New data shows that the same holds for dogs.

    It now seems clear that that if you frequently lie to dogs, they lose their trust in you and begin to act as if they can no longer rely on the information that you give them.

    I only added the quotes because I didn't like that post looking as if I was saying it to Lemmy.
