We know biologically that humans do feel hungry, noise, emotion.

What evidences are there, that dogs do not feel hungry, noise, emotion?

Biologically affective feelings related to experiences of the mouth, ears/touch, fight or flight response, etc, are basically the same in dogs and humans.

When dogs are hungry they will go looking for food, to me that proves they feel hunger.

I am sure biologically dogs have ears/skin.


It is common for older dogs to have diminished hearing

Anxiety


If a deaf dog is not looking, or is asleep when a person leaves the room they can become anxious and start searching the house trying to find them. A gentle touch on the dog's shoulder to get his attention before leaving the room will let him know what is happening and give him the chance to follow if he wants to.


Dogs and humans (mammals) are born with primarily the same 7 unconditioned emotional response systems.

SEEKING
RAGE
FEAR/anxiety
LUST
CARE
GRIEF/separation anxiety
PLAY
