Do Dogs Have Empathy? Or Is It a Sixth Sense?

How Dogs Respond to Our Hidden Desires…


Dogs inherited this ability and started using it on us, manipulating us into “domesticating” them. Over the years they developed a deeper and stronger ability to tune into our emotional states. It’s what enables them to work for us and, quite often, to comfort us when we’re not feeling well.


It’s not empathy. And it’s not emotional contagion. I think it’s more like a sixth sense, an ability to tune in to our emotional vibrations.
