That's an interesting question. Can you tell us what you need help with?

Science Buddies has an experiment designed to look at paw preference that you might want to check out: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/mentoring ... p011.shtml.

Hey mutts101!!!

Im not a professional just so u know :D

My friend did this project last year and it turned out really well...she took a piece of tape and put it on a dogs nose to see which paw they tried to take it off with..

Hope you get far with your project!!!!

mutts 101,
I suppose that what all depend On if your dog was born right pawed or left pawed I would assume dogs are not much different than people in that respect. :)
