Think you know everything there is to know about your dog? You may know their favorite food, what toys they like best, and who their best friend is (we’re guessing it’s you). But here are ten dog facts we bet are news to you!
1) The Ears Have It!
Ears can contribute to more than 100 of your dogs cutest expressions! We’re sure you know what those look like, but did you know dogs can hear sounds up to four times farther than humans can?
If your dog barks or howls in the middle of the night, they may be hearing something you aren’t. Sirens and other distant sounds can hurt your dog’s sensitive ears.
But sounds can also be beneficial to your pup! If your dog experiences anxiety when left alone, playing music or leaving the TV on at a moderate volume can provide comfort and stimulation.
