The perception of humans by piglets: recognition of familiar handlers and generalisation to unfamiliar humans
TLDR
Although piglets were able to extend their memory of humans to an unfamiliar human through generalisation, many factors seemed to interact in this process, especially the complexity of the previous experience and the context in which piglets met the unfamiliar human.
Dogs don't always prefer their owners and can quickly form strong preferences for certain strangers over others.
TLDR
Both shelter and owned dogs tested with two strangers showed a magnitude of preference for one stranger over the other similar to owned dogs' preference for owners in an unfamiliar context, but the strength of preference shown for one of two strangers indicates dogs can form a preferences for one person quickly.
Human proximity seeking in family pigs and dogs
TLDR
It is found that both dogs and pigs seek the proximity of their caregiver, but there is a difference in how each species generalizes their experience to other humans.
Gazing as a help requesting behavior: a comparison of dogs participating in animal-assisted interventions and pet dogs
TLDR
Comparisons of the behavior of AAI and pet dogs during an unsolvable task and results suggest that gazing may be a significant communicative response in AAI dogs, which could probably contribute to having a better coordination with their handler.

TLDR
These interspecies interactions were considered to indicate that human behaviors change behaviors of these animals and vice versa and studies that investigated these cognitive systems and such learning were reviewed.

Friend or foe: Context dependent sensitivity to human behaviour in dogs
Dogs’ attention towards humans depends on their relationship, not only on social familiarity
TLDR
Investigation of how long dogs would attend to the actions of two familiar humans and one unfamiliar experimenter while varying whether dogs had a close relationship with only one or both familiar humans provides evidence that social familiarity cannot account for dogs’ increased attention towards their owners.
Are dogs (Canis familiaris) misled more by their owners than by strangers in a food choice task?
TLDR
Results show that dogs are willing to follow a person’s indication even when this is visibly (if perhaps only mildly) counterproductive to them and that they are socially prepared to rely equally on cues given by the owner and an unfamiliar friendly person.

Gender differences in owners interacting with pet dogs: an observational study
Many studies show that people form strong affectional bonds with their dogs, treating them like family members or children. The present study investigates differences between women and men owners
The Importance of the Secure Base Effect for Domestic Dogs – Evidence from a Manipulative Problem-Solving Task
TLDR
This study is the first to provide evidence for an owner-specific secure base effect in dogs that extends from attachment tests to other areas of dogs' lives and also manifests itself in cognitive testing – thereby confirming the remarkable similarity between the secure baseEffect in dogs and in human children.
A comparative study of the use of visual communicative signals in interactions between dogs (Canis familiaris) and humans and cats (Felis catus) and humans.
TLDR
The results suggest that individual familiarization with pointing gestures ensures high-level performance in the presence of such gestures; however, species-specific differences could cause differences in signaling toward the human.
Attachment behavior of adult dogs (Canis familiaris) living at rescue centers: forming new bonds.
In this study, 60 shelter dogs (Canis familiaris) were observed in the modified version of the Strange Situation Test, which has proved to be a useful method for studying dogs' attachment behavior
