What’s your dog’s personality type?

If you always thought your dog was an extrovert, you could be right. A Monash University study has found dogs can be grouped into personality types that parallel human traits.

Dr Jacqui Ley, from the Animal Welfare Science Centre at Monash, found that dogs fit into five personality dimensions — extroversion, trainability or cleverness, self assuredness and motivation, amicability with other dogs and people, and cautiousness.

A dog’s life, but only if you’re bilingual

British police have had to import German Shepherds from other countries due to a shortage in Britain. Only problem is, the dogs are trained to obey commands in the languages of their countries of origin – not English!

So what did the cops do? Take language courses and hire interpreters, of course!
