Surprisingly, scientists have recognized that dogs repeatedly mimic people. Dogs cannot easily stop this tendency to mimic humans, even when the behavior is not in their best interest. Humans, nonhuman primates, and certain birds repeatedly copy some people within their very own category as well. If imitation is the sincerest type of flattery, dogs always give us praise. A Recent study has confirmed that dogs automatically imitate us, even when not in their best interest to do so. The study, published in the latest Proceedings of the Royal Society B, provides the first evidence that dogs copy at least some of human’s body movements and our physical behaviors spontaneously and voluntarily. In other words, they really cannot afford to help themselves when it comes to copying people. Research confirms that any dog behavior is influenced a lot like that of children; through socialization, learning right and wrong and adopting similar patterns of behavior. "Hopefully dog owners understand the importance of their actions and use this knowledge to set good examples and therefore positively affect the behavior of their dogs." Dogs are very good at picking up some things that we say and trying to say it back makes it more amazing. This dog saying “hello” had everyone laughing. Enjoy the video!
