It seems our four-legged friends go a step further and even copy humans too. They automatically imitate hand movements with their paws and mouth movements with their muzzles. Humans are known to engage in ‘automatic imitation’, when another person’s body moving in a particular way elicits the same physical reaction in an observer. And now canines have been shown to do the same.

It has often been observed that dogs resemble their owners. Dogs’ imitative abilities are shaped by the way their owners interact with them as they grow up. Samson the Newfoundland is desperately trying to learn to talk. His owner keeps bringing it up and he seems to know it has something to do with making noises and moving his mouth. He has such a desire to please her and watches attentively as he tries to do what she is doing. Hilarious and at this rate, he might get there.

So, Samson listens to his owner extremely concentrated to what she is saying to him, watching her face excitedly and breathing deeply. He is trying to make a sound and shape his mouth in a way his owner does. It seems that he understands the meaning of the word ‘talk’ and when his owner mentions it, he quickly changes his sitting position and is thrilled to communicate like humans do. He is a keen observer because he knows that if you want to talk you just need to open and close your mouth in quick successions and wait for a sound to come out. Keep on talking Samson, you are a heck of a talker, the right buddy to hang out with.

      Our dog is way more conversational than that. Only thing that dog is saying is I'm tired!

      He was trying to tell you that he wanted to go outside. Its about the only thing dogs indoors get excited about. Not speaking English
