People Are Shaming Their Dogs, And Here Are 43 Of The Worst Good Boys Ever

It’s a place where people share amusing pictures of their naughty pups after they have eaten all the donuts, covered the patio in pee, or committed some other unforgivable crime! Continue scrolling and meet the suspects.

In some of these pics, it appears that the animals are repenting for their “sins.” However, even though dogs can learn what their owners consider appropriate and inappropriate behavior, we still aren’t sure if they feel guilt.

In a 2009 study, researchers observed dogs and their owners under several sets of circumstances and discovered that dogs tended to display “guilty” body language more frequently when their owners scolded them than when the owners remained neutral – regardless of whether the dogs had actually done anything wrong.

Dog cognition scientist and author Dr. Alexandra Horowitz, who was in charge of the research, concluded that “a better description of the so-called guilty look is that it is a response to owner cues, rather than that it shows an appreciation of a misdeed.”

According to the American Kennel Club, when we consider a dog looking guilty, we usually mean it displays some or all of the following behaviors or signs:

  • Tucked tail;
  • Visible whites of the eyes;
  • Cowering, hunched posture;
  • Yawning;
  • Licking;
  • Flattened ears;
  • Avoiding eye contact.

These expressions are signs of fear and stress in dogs. But determining if dogs truly feel bad about breaking our rules is tricky — guilt is a complex concept.

It requires an understanding of cause and effect in relation to time, which is difficult to prove. Plus, dogs don’t talk about how they feel by using words, so we don’t know what they think about while they wait for us to come home and discover a chewed-up shoe.

#13 Dog Shaming Shenanigans

Dr. Mary R. Burch, certified applied animal behaviorist, believes that when a dog looks guilty for an action such as house soiling or chewing, it has most likely done this before and may have experienced a strong reaction from its owner – scolding, yelling, or the cold shoulder. Now the dog may anticipate how the owner will react and exhibit body language to try to appease its owner, for instance cowering, as a way of asking for forgiveness.
