[VIDEO] Do Dogs Really Copy Our Yawns?

You can say many things about me, but you can never say I worry about looking like a fool.  It’s a nice luxury I have on account of the fact that I always look like a fool.  Recent research claims that dogs will copy their person’s yawn, but I haven’t seen those researchers post any video proof.  Why not?  Probably because people don’t want videos posted of them yawning at dogs like a bunch of fools.Fear not.  I have no such qualms.  Here’s Eko and I putting the copycat yawn theory to the test. For science.

    Dang – you got me yawning – so do i get a treat?

  2. Emmadog says:

    Nice one! I do yawn a lot if my mom yawns, so I would have to say that I am a copy dog yawner.

  3. Steven/Buddy says:

    Cute !
    Ok, Guys thanks a lot ! Since I have read this the other day, I have been trying this with Buddy. Buddy has not copied me yet, but I have copied Buddy ?
    Luckily, Buddy and I are camping for a week and have much extra time to try this.
    I am just glad no one is with us or really no one is around us when I try this !
    We must really look funny doing this ?
    I.have been video taping each time I.try it, like I said, it has not worked when I yawn, but when Buddy yawns , well then I can’t stop.
    I have found out this so far, I have taken a couple more naps then what I usually do when camping !
    Thanks Will & Eko LOL

    Steffi is a yawner and a lip licker. We have always said we know when she’s relaxed and happy when she licks her lips as she’s falling asleep.

  5. Our Mummy loves the look on your face when he finally copies you. She couldn’t stop giggling. Great experiment!

    Mummy tried it with us but whee took it as a cue for nap time and cuddled down and fell asleep on her!

    Have a great wheekend!

    I nearly yawned my head off 😉 Have a good nap!

  7. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who yawned from watching. GAH! I tried this with Cupcake, but couldn’t make it happen.

  8. […] anxiety or more recently that dogs like to copy us – check out a funny post by Will and Eko here, but in this case I think she really was just bored with not seeing anything in the murky […]

  9. Well done, I think Eko has a future in science…

  10. I actually tried this with Merle, our male ridgie after watching your video. He is a bit on the nervous side and I actually think this will calm him down when he gets anxious. Thanks for the tip!!

    Eko should have his own science show!
