Doggy Lie

A new study has been looking into whether dogs can tell if they are being lied to or not.

The research from the University of Vienna studied the actions of 260 dogs who took part in the same experiment where they had to find food in one of two buckets.

Researchers found that some dogs were able to ignore advice given to them by humans showing them the wrong place to find a treat.

The ability of the dogs to find the treat and ignore the false advice varied depending on the breed and age of the animal, with younger dogs more likely to follow the advice of humans even if it was wrong.
