研究称多数狗狗不喜欢被人拥抱

这对于爱宠人士来说恐怕是个坏消息。根据近日发表在美国《今日心理学(Psychology Today)》杂志的一项研究指出, 大多数宠物狗不喜欢被人拥抱。 这项研究的作者Stanley Coren使用了互联网上250张主人拥抱宠物狗的照片进行研究。他对这些照片进行分析后发现, 其中81.6%的表现出很大的压力,比如转头不看主人。而只有7.6%的照片显示, 狗狗喜欢被主人拥抱。

 

 

You may think all of those hugs you’ve been giving to your dog were wanted, but in reality your dog feels it’s being held hostage, according to a new data.

你可能一直认为,你给你狗狗的所有拥抱,都是它渴望的,但根据新数据,实际上,狗狗感觉是被绑架了。

An article published in Psychology Today claims dogs find physical contact – including hugs – stressing and gives them anxiety. Stanely Coren, who studies canine behavior at the University of British Columbia, says an embrace between humans signals warmth and affection, but dogs are not humans.

一篇发表在《今日心理学》 的文章称, 身体接触,包括拥抱给狗狗的感觉是焦虑以及压力。加拿大不列颠哥伦比亚大学心理学教授、犬类专家斯坦利.科伦说,人类之间的拥抱是温暖和喜爱的象征,但是狗狗和人类的感觉截然不同。

Coren explains the hug in nature is restrictive and may annoy or frighten a dog. The signs of stress and anxiety in dogs are well established, and are easily observable, at least by trained individuals.

科伦解释说,在自然中,拥抱也意味着限制,可能会使狗狗愤怒或者害怕。而狗狗焦虑和压力大的迹象非常好辨认,至少对于受过训练的人员来说。

These signs and other similar ones should be easy to detect in stressed dogs:

在狗狗感觉压力大的时候,这些特征或者类似特征应该能被发现。

turns head away from whatever is bothering it

扭头避免让它感觉烦躁的事物

closing eyes, at least partially

闭眼,至少半闭

show white portion of the eyes at the corner or the rim

露出眼角眼白

ears are lowered or slicked against the side of its head

耷拉着耳朵,夹紧脑袋

lip licking or licking a person’s face

舔嘴唇或者舔人的脸

yawning

吼叫

raising one paw

举爪子

bare teeth

露牙齿

The data shows that while few dogs may like being hugged, more than four out of five dogs find it unpleasant.

数据显示,一些狗狗可能真喜欢拥抱,但是有超过五分之四的狗狗讨厌拥抱。

“The clear recommendation to come out of this research is to save your hugs for your two-footed family members and lovers” Coren wrote. “It is clearly better from the dog’s point of view if you express your fondness for your pet with a pat, a kind word, and maybe a treat.”

科伦说,这个研究得出的清晰结论是,把你的拥抱留给用双腿行走的家人和爱人吧,对狗狗来说,很清楚,轻轻拍打、温馨话语和食物奖励都是向狗狗表达喜爱的更好方式。
