A research carried out on two dozen breeds, from poodles to pit bulls, confirmed what most pet owners already suspected. When a dog watches either a stranger or its owner yawn, the dog is far more likely to yawn in response to its owner. A big part of this is empathy. Dogs are known to be skilled at reading human social and communicative behaviors, they can tell when the owner is sad, for example. While said study didn’t concentrate on yawning being contagious between dogs, it is believed that this is also true.

This is great, I always thought that fish have too little space in their small tanks. Now they can explore the world (well, your apartment at least) and come chat when they’re lonely.
