Is your pet left-pawed or right-pawed?

Friday, Sep 07, 2012

It is believed that only about 13 percent of the world's human population is left-handed.

Genetics are believed to be primarily responsible for this trait because left-handedness can definitely "run in the family". In fact, a gene that researchers believe is responsible for left-handedness has now been isolated.

Here's another interesting fact – left-handed people are much more likely to be creative. Most left-handers are visual thinkers who excel in creative fields like art and music. They are also more likely to excel in ball sports and at tasks that involve three-dimensional thinking and hand-eye coordination.

Interesting.

But does "handedness" apply to pets, too? Can dogs be "left-pawed" or "right-pawed"?

The answer is "YES"! and we tell you how to test your pet in our latest podcast.
