Dogs are human’s best friends. We treat them like our children and baby them like no other. While you may think you know everything about your dog, do you know these 5 facts?
Your toddler and dog have a similar IQ
They can speak the same language! Your dog can understand around the same 250 words and gestures that your child knows. So when they babble at each other, they might actually be communicating.
Dogs have a sense of time
Your dog may not carry a watch, but they do pick up on our daily routines. So they know when they’re supposed to be fed and walked, especially when that time is skipped.
Their senses are better
Your dog can hear four times as far as we can. They can also hear higher-pitched sounds than humans. Humans can hear 64-23,000 Hz, and dogs can hear up to 45,000 Hz.
Their sense of smell can vary from 1,000 to 10 million times better than your hearing. They have millions more scents glands than we do. The part of their brains that are dedicated to smell is 40 times larger than ours.
Your dog has a naturally high body temperature. They can range from 101-102.5 degrees. So if your dog seems a little warm, that’s perfectly normal.
You might have heard that each dog year is different than human years. But, not all dog’s age alike! Larger dogs tend to age faster than the smaller breeds. If you want to know how old your pup would be if they were human, use this calculator to find out!
We know your pup is your best friend and we will treat them the same. If your dog needs training, daycare or a treat form our bakery, we have what you need!
