NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - It's that face -- those irresistible big eyes that make you melt every time. A new study published in Scientific Reports reveals just how much our pooches use their eyes to communicate with us. Those sad puppy dog eyes have humans eating out of their hands.
Researchers found that the facial expressions are not involuntary, which begs the question: are dogs manipulating us?
The study's findings also reiterate the importance of making eye contact with your pet when you want him to stop doing something bad or good.
The researchers said that our pets may not be purposely manipulating us.
