    Social eavesdropping in the domestic dog 10.1016/j.anbehav.2011.02.029 : Animal Behaviour | ScienceDirect.com

    there are also graphs of the dogs' gaze-time [generous vs selfish person], & their approach/avoid responses.

    did U scroll down?
    the graphs were visible under the abstract.

    beg pardon, but i've previously posted each link for that 6-part series. :p

    yes, i've watched it & thought it was great - BUT it's not a substitute for a recent study, IMO,
    published in a peer-reviewed journal; the film is a summary, not details of research.

    If that study's conclusion is that dogs are aware of who gives treats/food by observation I think any dog owner with half a brain will already know this.

    Is there more 'meat' in the full report?
