While these interactions are peak Wholesome Content™, don't blame your pup if they're unresponsive over the phone - scientists say that dogs have a harder time recognizing their owners' faces over small screens.
A dog's sensory input is also much more attuned to your scent and tone of voice than visual images. According to a HuffPost article, dogs also process visuals 25 percent faster than humans. So when Fido looks at the screen, they may only be seeing a jerky, fuzzy picture of your face.
