And did you notice the look on your dog’s face? Does he look guilty because he misbehaved or disobeyed your orders?

Experiment to Know if the Guilty Look is Real
Because of this “guilty” look, a lot of researchers try to find out if dogs can really feel guilty. To learn if this emotion is real to dogs, experts did an exercise. They had different dogs and their owners in one room where there is a dog treat.
They let the owners leave after instructing their dogs not to eat the treat and let them come back after a couple of minutes. Different dogs reacted in different ways, some obeyed their owners and did not even touch the treat, but others couldn’t restrain themselves and ate the treat away.
When their respective owners returned, the experts noticed that the dogs acted differently and usually responded to the body language of their owners. Those obedient dogs didn’t have the guilty look, but instead, was excited about their owners coming back.
Those dogs that ate the treat, as expected, had that “guilty” look in their face. This guilty look is usually the result of the body language of their owners. When the dog owners noticed that the treat was gone, it was automatic to scold their dogs.
