Dogs in a recent study demonstrated flexible thinking, which would allow them to understand a human's perspective, according to researcher Juliane Kaminski from the University of Portsmouth in the U.K. In the study of 84 dogs, animals were four times more likely to eat food they had been ordered to stay away from when the lights were turned off, even though the owner was still in the room. Kaminski said the findings mean dogs understood that their owners couldn't see them when the lights were off.
