Many of us know commonly discussed facts about our canine friends such as them having immaculate senses such as smell, but did you know that not every dog nose is the same? Dog noses are just like human fingerprints; each one is distinct to it’s owner. Stanley Coren, a reputable canine researcher, has also discovered that the average dog is as smart as a two-year old human. Not only can dogs count, but they can also understand up to 150 words.
- When dogs are happy, they wag their tails to the right, and when they are frightened, they wag it to the left.
- Female canines only actually go into heat twice each year, much less than many assume.
- The ear canals and eyes are still closed when puppies are born, so they are born temporarily deaf and blind.
“According to canine researcher and author Stanley Coren, your toddler and pup are about on par when it comes to brains.”
