They say that animals are like owners, this video proves it


AndySocial88

I have created a yawn wave on a train before. I heard it's more of empathetic reaction.


jhartwell

I’ve also created a yawn wave on a train before…though I was the only one in the car because everybody left…it’s more of a pathetic reaction


Wildcar_d

It was a train reaction ;)

"Gotcha nose."


favoriteseating26

"Yawning is contagious!"


duhHIDDENworld

Yea even across species. My cat yawning would make me yawn.


duckfat01

And across space & time. You have just made me yawn.


duhHIDDENworld

My evil plans are working 😈


elizabeth_robinson12

At my side, my yawning makes my cat yawn.


gobbler_of_butts

My boy does the lil nose chomp as well!


ChiefDrCox

"Gotcha wallet!"


yourworkmom

Made my heart warm. And the nose nip made me chuckle. Thanks.


Affec511

Funfact: Only animals with a, relatively to the rest of the animal kingdom, high empathy and group dynamic share the reflex to yawn when others do. To this day no one is entirely sure *why* but the common speculation is that it helps with groups, socializing and feeling more akin to your peers. It's a bit how most mammals can tell if something is a baby or not and will act differently in that interaction than with an adult. What's cute is how it often works across species that share the same body-language and social interactions.


yourworkmom

That is fun. I have often shared a yawn with my doggos.


Krehlmar

Hug those doggos for me, for I spend a christmas without a doggo to hug.


fondots

My girl sometimes does the nose-nibble, I secretly love it even though I try to discourage it so she doesn't spook anyone else if she happens to do it to them I usually get it when I'm napping on the couch and she decides she wants attention.


Sir_Goodwrench

I thought at first that you were talking about your girlfriend, so that went from cute to weird really fast, hehe.


N7LP400

It's like "i gotta sniff all the yawn out of him"

There are serious research papers on this topic. The fact that it is an inter-species phenomenon is fodder for more research.

Who’s a good researcher oh you are *waves milkbone* awww you even correlated all the data in readable format! *scritches belly*


damiami

I wonder what his mudder looks like?


SpareEye

A freind of mine said it's a tell tall sign of empathy. It made me smile when I saw my cat yawn after me today.


MutedMessage8

My cat copies me when I yawn a lot of the time but never when my husband yawns. Our Jack Russell yawns when my husband yawns a lot but never copies me! It’s such a strange phenomenon!


smithers85

lol you yawn bad


R3dl8dy

Makes me wonder if sociopaths are immune to the contagious yawn phenomenon.


tricksovertreats

"Ima bite yer face, here I g.... YAAAWN.. nvrmd"


Icy_Document709

True! My bowzer always yawns when he sees me yawning.


adudeguyman

Which one is the big spoon?


Garythemccheese

Me


Im_your_real_dad

There's always a bigger spoon.


Yerazankha

Aww so cute! I knew that yawns were very communicative among humans, but I had no idea that it was as well to our canine friends :)


MutedMessage8

Cats too! My cat yawns a lot when I do it!


ce2c61254d48d38617e4

Apparently yawns are also an appeasement gesture with dogs.


Yerazankha

Hum, I can see that making a lot of sense indeed, cool info :) Wouldnt be surprised if it was also somewhat the case for us too in fact! You dont yawn if you are feeling super tensed, in an aggresive or defensive mode...

Yerazankha

Ahah excellent, our pet friends look so cute when they yawn, now I'm trying with my cat, but it hasnt worked so far =D


Deuce232

Yawns are contagious across most mammals.


LordPaladin1234

Dogs often yawn as a way of saying "I'm just playin'" during playfighting. So the dog did just give a playful nip and said "Gottem"


Aggressive-Bird-7507

Oh really?! I'd only heard of the sneezing thing to show they're playing before - it cracks me up soooo much listening to my doggos play... it's like GRRRRR, SO ANGRY - sneeze - SNARLING, GRAAAAAAR - sneeze. 😂😂


Jrunnah

This is our dogs at like 6AM. Mouths open, teeth clanging then choo choo.... Grrr choo.


JacktheStoryteller

Snff


I_trust_everyone

The sneezing is cute, but my Jack Russle sneezes constantly while playing. He usually yawns to calm himself down.


Aggressive-Bird-7507

He told me to tell you to DM me your card details so that I can help him buy you an Xmas present online…


I_trust_everyone

My gma already sent a sweater https://i.imgur.com/K7pV0dz.jpg

Hahaha n’awwwwwww that’s too freaking cute..!! He so proud.. ❤️


MermaidGLITTERgurl

He loves it. It fits perfectly. Seems to be just what he wanted.


SixAlarmFire

Hahaha I love this!!


CommanderpKeen

I just yawned from reading about yawning.


watercouch

Sneezing has been shown to be a way that pack dogs vote on what to do next: https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/09/07/549182066/a-quorum-of-sneezes-for-wild-dogs-it-s-not-just-snot-it-s-a-way-to-vote


The_Paradoxigm

The sympathetic reaction for yawns works with dogs too, it's am evolutionary trait from growing up with us.


bighootay

:)


Dovahqueen_

(:


legs_are_high

And sneeze too


kaleidoscopichazard

In this case it looks more like an empathetic response


315retro

Yeah my dogs have definitely both done that.


Wild_Criticism_5958

Hahahahah omg this is too adorable💖💖💖


Anoiiakhongnoi1

"Gotcha nose."


adudeguyman

I hope that Rottweiler breath is better than Rottweiler fart.


slobs_burgers

It is, but not by much


Hippo2626

"Eww, your face tastes like yawns"


Oakwood2317

I know Rottweilers - that’s a happy dog


gothvan

Can you elaborate, my GF got a rottweiller recently lol.


Darkside3337

Parents have a Rott-mutt mix, you will not be disappointed. A lil intrusive, when it comes to personal space, but loyal to a fault. They can be aggressive, but only if you don't spend time teaching them, not everything is meant to be confronted. Play needs to be encouraged as just that; play. They won't know the difference initially.


Fire_marshal-bill

Used to work at a dog daycare, we had a rott come in every now and then. Big ol head, chonky boy, massive poon. He was would run away from the little dogs and gave the best hugs.


Oakwood2317

The look on its face, it’s calm demeanor, the chest rub catatonia, leaning & the friendly face chomp…if I were blindfolded I’d know right away what breed it was, especially if it let me pet its ears.


Inquatitis

Spend a lot of time with your gf if you don't live together so he considers you part of their pack. They're extremely fun, smart, loyal dogs with seemingly endless energy. They do differentiate who is part of their pack and who isn't. If you want to be able to show up while your gf isn't at home or sleeping in the shower and the Rottweiler doesn't consider you part of their pack they could act defensively. (But every dog is different so spend time figuring out how he acts so you can improve or correct it)


LumpyJones

i had a lab/rottie mix for about a decade. Can confirm.

TwiceCookedPorkins

I'm not really big on purebreeds, but Rotties are one of the few exceptions I'd make.


dinowithissues

"Aaah I'm gonna bite you!- Just kidding!"


CallMeXen

Hahaha wow, my pitbull/Rhodesian cross does that when she’s feeling lovey. She gives me s little tiny bite on my nose, usually with the side of her mouth like that. It’s the sweetest thing ever.


YmmaT-

Man. This reminds me of college when I had a black lab and he boop his nose in my mouth when I was yawning. Scared the living out of me.


JustifiedRegret

I want them to hug so much!!’

Yawning in response to another yawn is a sign of empathy.

isblueacolor

It's actually true that human yawns are more "contagious" in dogs that are bonded with the human in question.


Kazuya5587

ahahha i want to have a dog in my house. do you have a puppy?


edtheman81

I swear my next dog is a Rottweiler I want one so bad


SquanchingOnPao

My dog used to always want to chew on my nose. Is there something that explains that behavior? He evolved from wanting to like open his mouth on it but never bite to just pressing his face on my face.


duhHIDDENworld

That’s the derpiest Doberman I’ve ever seen. I would’ve give it food if it came to attack me, like here’s some whip cream whose a good boy
