Dogs and human traits is one area which has been long explored by researchers and scientists, intent in coming up with a roster of personality similarities shared by dogs and human beings.
Fluke, the 1995 released movie by MGM studios, treaded into similar waters, telling the story of a workaholic who died in an automobile accident, only to come back to the real world as a dog. Getting into hilarious situations in living life as a dog, the movie was quite unique for its time, exploring the world as seen though the eyes of man’s best friend.
But away from the world of fiction and stories, a recently conducted study notes an actual similarity shared by dogs and human beings – particularly with where tail chasing dogs and human beings with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are concerned.
Conducted by geneticists from the Folkhalsan Research Center and University of Helsinki in Finland, the study’s findings were published in the PLoS One journal, noting certain similarities found between tail chasing dogs and human OCD conditions.
The study notes that most of the owners of its dog participants shared that their dogs’ tail chasing habits took root somewhere between three to six month old ages. The National Institute of Mental Health indicates that OCD conditions tend to take root in early childhood or during adolescence, establishing a similarity between dogs and humans.
The study also notes that most tail chasing dogs are liable to develop other conditions, conditions like higher sex hormone levels. Also, the study indicates that tail chasing dogs are more liable to positively respond to nutritional supplements.
All in all, the study managed to find a link between tail chasing dogs and OCD.
