Also, “science has confirmed what some dedicated owners have long suspected: yes, dogs do have a dominant or preferred paw preference. A study at Queen’s University Belfast found that female dogs tend to prefer their right paw, while male dogs prefer their left. … Some dogs are “ambidextrous” to begin with and exhibit no paw preference.” Read more HERE
