London, Sep 29 (PTI) Dogs can smell stress from a human's sweat and breath, according to a study conducted in the UK.

The research, published recently in the journal PLOS ONE, reinforces that dogs are highly sensitive and intuitive animals.

The research involved four dogs from Belfast – Treo, Fingal, Soot and Winnie – and 36 people. In every test session, each dog was given one person’s relaxed and stressed samples, taken only four minutes apart.
