Are they confused? Are they curious? Or are they simply just being adorable?
We all know how impossible it is to say no to those puppy eyes. And, when combined with that innocent-looking tilt of their head, we are, let’s face it, putty in our dog’s hands.
But why do they tilt their heads? Are they being inquisitive and wondering what we are thinking or are they trying to tell us something much more meaningful?
Well, according to Mental Floss, there’s a science behind it: Dogs are trying to tell us that they care (heart melts instantly). Apparently, when a dog tilts its head, it’s a symbol that they are showing us empathy and that they are engaged. It’s not surprising, really, as we all know how in tune with our emotions dogs can be.
If you think about it, we humans do it, too. When someone tells us about a sad story or some unfortunate news, we often tilt our heads in a caring way.
It is also said that dogs tilt their heads so that they can hear us better. Although they are known for their amazing hearing, they can sometimes find it hard to locate exactly where the sound is coming from. And tilting their heads adjusts their ears and allows them to pinpoint the exact source and tone of a voice more clearly.
In short, dogs are adorable. Maybe they really do have the credentials to be our best friends or, at least, excellent listeners.
