They say dogs are “man’s best friend.” But are they really WOMAN’S best friend? A new study found they’re more likely to listen to, and follow instructions from women. And the reason is . . . BABY TALK. (???)
Researchers scanned dogs’ brains while they played audio of people talking to dogs . . . to babies . . . and to other adults.
It turned out the dogs’ brains lit up much more when they heard speech directed at dogs and babies. And especially when it was a woman talking.
