Behaviorists:Dogs feel no shame despite the look
LOS ANGELES — The next time youstart shaking your ﬁnger and shouting“Shame on you!” because your dogchewed up your favorite fuzzy slip-pers, just remember that no matterhow guilty your dog looks, it doesn’tknow what your rant is about. Behaviorists insist dogs lackshame. The guilty look — head cow-ered, ears back, eyes droopy — is areaction to the tantrum you are throw-ing now over the damage they didhours earlier.“Just get over it and remind yourself not to put temptation in the way nexttime,” said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a pro-fessor at Texas A&M University’sCollege of Veterinary Medicine andexecutive director of the AmericanCollege of Veterinary Behaviorists.But scientiﬁc ﬁndings haven’t put adent in the popularity of online dogshaming sites like dogshaming.comand shameyourpet.com or videos likethose posted on youtube.com/crack-rockcandy. In the photos and videos,dogs wear humorous written “confes-sions” and often are surrounded by theremnants of their misdeeds. There isno question that in some photos, theylook guilty of eating, drinking, chew-ing, licking or destroying somethingthey shouldn’t have.Dogshaming.com was the ﬁrst andis among the most popular sites.Since Pascale Lemire started it inAugust 2012, it has received morethan 58 million page views and morethan 65,000 submissions. Asubmis-sion has to come with a photo show-ing the dog’s guilty look.Lemire, who lives in Vancouver,British Columbia, also published abook called “Dog Shaming,” whichhit the New York Times best-seller listin January.“I don’t think dogs actually feelshame,” Lemire said. “I think theyknow how to placate us with this sadpuppy-dog look that makes us thinkthey’re ashamed of what they’ve done.My guess is that their thinking is: ‘Ohman, my owner is super mad aboutsomething, but I don’t know what, buthe seems to calm down when I givehim the sad face, so let’s try thatagain.”’
