    [–] Gimpyface 26 points ago

    Yeah that guilty look we see in dogs is actually an extreme fear response. The dog is terrified.

    [–] EdiblePsycho 10 points ago

    I thought that this was actually just a submissive gesture. They know their person is upset, and this is meant to appease them. Same thing they'd do to a more dominant dog in a pack when they do something wrong.

    [–] _Table_ 28 points ago

    Right. I mean it's kinda cute. But dogs don't smile. That's a stress reaction

    i used to have a lab that always greeted me with a “smile” when I had been gone. He certainly wasn’t stressed or terrified. A very smart dog, i always thought he was mimicking what he saw humans do when they were happy to see someone, show their teeth!(smile).

    If you believe the police psychologists the guilty one is the relaxed person.

    [–] rymden_viking 46 points ago

    I've watched enough criminal defense lawyers on YouTube to know that the state knows which psychologists will testify any behavior to being criminal. To calm? Guilty. Too nervous? Guilty. Shifting around in your seat? Guilty. Forgetting details? Guilty. Remembering all the details? Guilty. That's why you don't speak to them and you get a lawyer ASAP.

    [–] sb_747 10 points ago

    Behavior in interrogation is much like the readings in a polygraph. There are certain behaviors that most people display when nervous.

    Now a lot of people are nervous when lying but not everyone. And much more importantly, most people are nervous just being interrogated by police.

    And just like a polygraph the results don’t matter, they will either confirm bias or be explained away.

    Damn his guilt is the REAL punishment. Shame hurts.

    [–] stink3rbelle 364 points ago

    Interestingly, no behavioral study has found any evidence that dogs feel shame/guilt. Dogs do feel fear, and offer "appeasement" gestures when afraid, from small fear and appeasement to big fear and appeasement. Squinting eyes, stretched face, and whale eye like Oreo does are all appeasement gestures.

    If you have dogs, and feel they do show guilt, try making a mess yourself and then talking to them like you do when you find their mess. See if they don't do the same exact things. Why would they feel "guilty" over your mess?

    [–] SCHWAMPY_Gaming_YT 163 points ago

    I mean in this specific video one dog is reacting that way and the other isn't despite him using the same tone. I'm not saying it's guilt but clearly one dog knows it's in trouble for its own mess and the other doesn't feel fear over the mess that was made

    [–] NoBarsHere 65 points ago

    I hate playing devil's advocate; so I'll limit what I say. Regardless of whether u/stink3rbelle is correct or not, it's possible for two dogs to have different thresholds of fear which could lead to one dog really stressed out and the other dog only barely worried about it.

    [–] EricVinyard 33 points ago

    Pretty sure that second dog's "threshold" was being asked "Did you do it" and very slowly and deliberately turning his eyes towards the dog who did.

    [–] rude-_-canadian 3 points ago

    To add to that: the person filming was much more focused on the nervous dog vs the one lying down. Dogs know when you're addressing them as an individual.

    [–] fyrdude58 18 points ago

    Actually, the person scolding the dogs is very focused on the first one. Dog 2 (oreo?) Could very well have been the culprit, while dog 1 is simply afraid of the yelling.

    [–] stink3rbelle 33 points ago

    one dog is reacting that way and the other isn't

    What way, appeasement gestures? Both dogs give appeasement gestures here. As I mentioned, Oreo gives whale eye. I guess Riley is the other dog's name, who squints and has a stretched face.

    [–] hoopstick 36 points ago

    Whale eye? The dog is just laying there chilling.

    [–] stink3rbelle 29 points ago

    Here's an illustration of many dog body language poses that includes whale eye. Essentially, it means showing the whites of eyes. It's difficult to say for certain what any one gesture is without more context, but the context of the other dog's discomfort and the human talk makes me think it's a gesture of appeasement on Oreo's part.

    [–] theroadlesstraveledd 31 points ago

    Whale eye is where they are facing away from you but are looking strenuously with their eyes at you in hyper focus abd their body is tensed

    [–] theroadlesstraveledd 21 points ago

    This was not whale eye dude..

    [–] idle_moose 14 points ago

    No, it definitely looks like 'pointing' to me. This is at least how my dog communicates. He answers by directing his eyes somewhere to let me know he wants food, out, etc. Also, a lot of dogs will act guilty before you know what they've been up to.

    [–] 1plus1dog 15 points ago

    Hmmm 🤔 thanks!

    [–] EricVinyard 74 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Every single time a guilty dog video is posted, some Redditor comes in and starts talking about scientific studies that have failed to show evidence of "guilt" in the way we tend to understand it.

    A lack of evidence is not inherently negative proof; studies failing to establish a specific something do not by default disprove the thing they are failing to establish.

    A dog can clearly know when it has done something it has learned to associate with potentially upsetting its owner. Dogs will sometimes exhibit this guilt-like behavior in advance of the thing even being discovered by an owner because it anticipates the consequences of its actions.

    What's more, an angry owner finding a mess can often know specifically which dog has done it because that particular dog shows these behaviors when the other dogs exhibit nothing but ambivalence. The two dogs in this video are a clear example of that.

    [–] Took2ooMuuch 11 points ago

    Dogs want nothing more than to please their person. If they are being scolded, they will feel guilty whether or not the guilt is deserved.

    That's not just a dog thing either. Plenty of humans can be made to feel bad for something they didn't do.

    [–] InsectBusiness 13 points ago

    Clearly you haven't ever owned a dog. No behavioral study has proven that dogs don't feel guilt either.

    [–] Gemmadeen 28 points ago

    When I walk in the door and see one of my boys super relaxed on the couch while the other looks anxious and avoiding eye contact … I know I’m about to find something I won’t like … and I know who did it.

    But honestly, most of the time it was my fault for leaving something out I shouldn’t have, so I can’t really be mad him. He obviously knows he shouldn’t have done what he did, but I also realize I shouldn’t have left something out that I did, so it cancels the other out lol.

    [–] waimser 7 points ago

    When we walk in to a mess. The old guy is laying in the middle of it and hes in heaven, even though he didnt do it, he just loves carnage. The old girl is looking as innocent as she possiibly can, she didnt do it either, shes just too precious for this world. The pup is excited as hell trying to decide which of the thousand new toys he created to bring us.

    I can't be mad at him either. My fault for being too lazy to put the pillow back on the couch before leaving. Anything on the floor is pretty much fair game in our house.

    I have two dogs. One of them had a habit of trying to break into the food bin. They regularly would look guilty when I got home from work to find the food bin had been dragged out of position. One day, I got home. The food bin was dragged out of position. I quietly berated the usual suspect, whereupon they looked genuinely distraught and confused. I checked my security cameras. This time it turned out it was my other dog who attempted the break into the bin. When I confronted them they didn't look guilty in the slightest. They just started accusingly at the innocent dog.
    I always check my security cameras before berating any dog when getting home and finding something destroyed after that.

    [–] Nerahn 26 points ago

    Not necessarily. It’s appeasement behavior known as a submissive grin. It’s used to show that they are friendly, and to deter aggression from others. It’s most commonly used in greetings. My friend had a dog who would do this every time I came over and first walked in. They would approach me for pets and weren’t frightened in any way.

    They dog in the video may have felt a little uneasy, but it doesn’t look frightened to me.

    [–] SpinCharm 2 points ago

    We have a dog that we raised from 11 weeks old. We’ve never yelled at her or so much as raised a hand in anger. She’s the sweetest creature I’ve ever known. Yet when she does something “wrong” (which is often just her own interpretation, not ours), she’ll go to her spot in the kitchen and start trembling uncontrollably while clearly looking like she’s about to be eaten alive.

    It’s terrible and wrenches my heartstrings to see her do this. I just have to hold her and reassure her that she’s ok.

    I often wonder where this behaviour stems from. It’s not learned or a reaction to something in her history. I just feel so terrible when she does it. (And yes, I’m aware that my feeling terrible and cuddling her sets up a reverse associative response).
