Deconstructing the guilty look. Is it guilt or fear?

Three significant studies have been done on this owner myth that their dogs feel "guilty" after misbehaving.

The findings are:
1. The owner’s behavior can trigger the guilty look.
2. Dogs don’t really tell on themselves (it’s an owner’s myth).
3. Neither engaging in a misdeed nor seeing evidence of a misdeed accurately predict whether or not a dog will show a guilty look.

What do YOU think? Guilt or Fear?
