It’s not uncommon that people say their dogs look like them and science has finally confirmed that there is a resemblance between dog owners and their beloved pets.

Sadahiko Nakajima, a researcher at Japan’s Kwansei Gakuin University, says there’s not just evidence that supports the idea that people and their dogs look alike, but also explains why that’s so.

The researcher conducted an experiment in 2009 which showed that people were able to match dogs and their owners simply by looking at their pictures.

Further, his results were similar to a number of previous studies. Since he was fascinated by his findings, Nakajima conducted another experiment in order to discover why humans and their pets look alike.

He came to the conclusion that individuals make decisions on dog-owner resemblance primarily by comparing features of the eye region between dogs and owners.
