It has been recently revealed in a report that there is need for dogs to learn self control as well. As strange as it might sound, the scientists have recently revealed that as humans need to register self control, so do dogs. This has been revealed according to a team of researchers from the Lille Norde de France University.
It was revealed in a research that was published in the Journal Psychonomic Bulletin & Review that self control is essential not only for humans, but also for dogs.
“When humans are depleted, they are less helpful, more aggressive, gamble more, etc. Apparently these consequences have biological roots. When dogs are depleted, they too are more likely to behave rashly and impulsively”, revealed Holly Miller, the lead author of the study.
It was said that dogs wouldn’t be able to keep up in simple puzzle tasks if they did not register proper self control. Also, it was said that when humans are tired and disinterested they tend to give up on puzzle tasks easier. This self control has to be taught to them, with efforts by the owner, and the dogs own input. It may differ from one dog to another, ad this is something that decides the nature and capacities of the dog.
This trait is much like humans, because when people don’t have proper self control over themselves, things are bound to go bad in life. It may range from an anger outburst, to splurging too much cash, or eating too much. Self control is a very essential trait and it comes with time and proper upbringing. It is a step by step process to which parents contribute majorly, in the dog’s case, the owner does.
