dog paws in grass

Have you ever wondered if your pet is a southpaw?  Does your dog shake with his left paw, while your cat grabs at toys with her right?

If you’re curious, there are a few activities you can try with your pet to determine whether they are left or right-pawed.

• Shake paws with your dog
• Hide treats just out of your pet’s grasp
• Dangle something above her head and see which paw she uses to swipe at it

To read more about your pet’s dominant paw, check out this article from Pet 360.
