We know them as man’s best friend. But have you ever stopped to wonder why dogs are so loyal and loving? Well, a new study is saying the reason dogs are man’s best friend is because of a hormone called oxytocin.
It’s produced in the brain and it’s why mothers and newborn babies always seem to have that special connection right from the start. One writer reported that both dogs and people produce more oxytocin when they’re cuddling together for just three minutes.
So researchers in Australia wanted to look at how dogs behaved after having their hormone levels increased. They took 62 dogs and gave half of them a nasal spray full of the hormone and a placebo to the other half.
After waiting 45 minutes, the dogs were then put through a series of tests in order to find a hidden treat. The researchers discovered the dogs given the oxytocin outperformed those given the placebo. This outcome remained the same when the same dogs were tested again 15 days later.
So there you have it. Dogs really are man’s best friend. But if your dog comes into the house with burrs and dirt in his fur it may be time to bring him in to U-Wash Doggie. We have two convenient locations – one in Newhall and another in Saugus.
We offer professional groomers who can get your pet looking like a million bucks, or you could do it yourself at one of our self-serve areas. We provide the tub, water at the perfect temperature, and shampoo, blow dryers and all the other supplies you’ll need.
