Study Shows Wolves are More Cooperative than Dogs
A recent study by comparative psychologists Friederike Range and Zsofia Viranyi showed that wolves were more tolerant and cooperative than domesticated dogs. Following a more linear dominance hierarchy, dogs demand obedience from subordinates. Scientists believe this is because humans selected and bred wolves on the ability to submit and be dependent on human dominance. When tested with meal times, wolves ate together and were cooperative in finding food while dogs were more worried about displaying dominance.
