A recent study from Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary has found that dogs and children interpret gestures differently due to a spatial bias. While children interpret pointing as indicating an object, dogs see it as a directional cue. The study suggests that this difference in interpretation is not only due to how dogs see, but also reflects how they think. Dogs with higher cognitive abilities and better visual acuity were found to have smaller spatial biases. Understanding this aspect of dogs' perception can lead to more effective training and enrichment strategies.
