Did you know this about dogs?
While dogs bring so much fun to households, there are so many other fascinating facts about dogs. Here are a few extraordinary facts:
- Dogs have such extraordinary smelling abilities. Their sense of smell is at least 40x better than humans. So, this is why you’re likely to see your dog sniffing everything they find.
- Another enhanced sense that they have is hearing. Dogs hear at a different frequency compared to us. They can hear softer sounds and sounds that are further away. This is why they struggle with loud noises. To them, it sounds a lot louder than we hear.
- Their ears have 18 muscles controlling their movement. Dogs use their ears to express a lot of their body language.
- Most dogs who love the water are excellent swimmers. If you have a swimming pool at home, introduce your dog to the water early.
