Dogs can tell when you’re lying

Scientists say your dog knows better than to trust that bogus happy tone you use for bad news, according to a new study.

Scientists, led by researcher Attila Andics from Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, found that dogs can differentiate between the way humans say words and what they actually mean. So if you call your dog a good boy, but your tone doesn’t match the words, he’s going to know you’re being dishonest.

The study found that dogs use their brains in an eerily similar way to humans.
