Like people, dogs and cats can be both right-handed persons, and lefthanders.
With dogs the situation is much more simply, than with cats and to define what party dominates, simple methods will help. It is enough to pay attention to what paw the dog uses in games what paw she moves to herself toys what paw gives the first on command. Besides, right-handed persons and lefthanders can slightly differ in character what tell researches about.
For example, dogs lefthanders are more careful and more aggressive in relation to strangers, the majority of seeing eye dogs and guard dogs of the right-handed person or an ambivalentna as lefthanders are eliminated because of not suitable character. Still the interesting fact, is dependence of that, is how strongly shown right-or left-лапость, and bravery of a dog. What more brightly expressed preference to the right or left paw, that easier the dog adapts in a new situation. The it is less expressed, the is more disturbing and not more surely the dog behaves.
At cats right-and left-лапость. On what touch a cat it is scratched, definitely not to define it, but nevertheless at cat's there are also right-handed persons and lefthanders. At everything at the same time, according to Deborah Wells and Sara Millsopp's researches (psychologists from the Royal university in Belfast in Northern Ireland), most often right-handed persons are cats, and the lefthander — cats.
to find out for certain what paw at your cat's dominates, it will be necessary to force it to make something actually difficult, it is more difficult, than to be scratched or play with a plumelet. "The task which we set for a cat is more difficult, the result will be more truthful" — Wells says. She and Millsopp suggested the 42nd cats to pass pleasant test — to get a quantity of a tuna from a jar with a narrow neck that the cat's head did not creep. Among the 21st cat everything, except one, used the right paw throughout each of ten tests while 20 of 21 cats gave advantage to the left paw. Only one cat was ambivalent. By words Wells, it is explained by the different level of hormones — prenatal тестестерон defines a levorukost. Similar communication was also revealed at dogs and horses.
