Dog's personality reflects owner's traits, study says

Your dog's personality reflects your own behavior traits. That's what a new study says about pets and their people!

If you're active and energetic, your pooch will be perky and want to keep up with you.

Socially awkward people don't tend to have friendly pets.

Pessimistic owners often have dogs who are fearful and don't respond to training.
