Anyone getting their first dog in the US should read this.

New research shows that first-time dog owners are more likely to notice their dog's abnormally repetitive activity, such as tail chasing.

In addition to biting and pacing, experts have shown that dogs who live in large families are more likely to exhibit other undesirable behaviours.

As a result of not getting enough activity or attention, they may display stressed behaviours.

Study participants included a diverse group of 4,436 Finnish dogs from 22 distinct breeds, as reported in the journal Scientific Reports.

There are many factors that contribute to "repetitive behaviour," according to the study's author and professor of veterinary sciences Hannes Lohi.

Canine repeated behaviour can benefit both dogs and humans.
