Dogs shed tears of joy when reunited with their owners, study suggests

  • Dogs shed tears of joy when reunited with their owners after being separated for a long time, a study published on Monday in peer-reviewed scientific journal Current Biology has found. 
  • Takefumi Kikusui, the study's lead author, said in a statement that dogs “shed tears associated with positive emotions." 
  • After seeing his poodle shed tears while nursing her puppies, he went on to conduct a study on how oxytocin plays a role in such a reaction. 
  • Oxytocin, the so-called “love hormone,” has previously been found in both dogs and their human owners during their interactions.
  • The recent study’s findings suggest that the release of oxytocin strengthens the bond between dogs and their human owners. They also suggest that there is a link between tear production and emotion in animals besides humans.
  • While earlier studies have shown that dogs release oxytocin naturally in the presence of their owners, this is reportedly the first time tear volumes and oxytocin have been studied in relation to owner-dog reunions.
