Dogs are human’s best friends. They are non-judgmental, loyal, cuddly, and entertaining. Most dogs enjoy napping, playing, eating treats, and being close to their favorite humans. If you’re a dog owner, there may be some things you don’t know about dogs. Here are some fun facts about our furry best friends.

Dog noses are like human fingerprints

Just like humans, no two dogs have the same nose print. Each nose has unique wrinkles, textures, and ridges.

Dogs tilt their heads to locate sound

Dogs may tilt their heads to better locate the source of a sound, as their hearing is more sensitive than humans.

Dogs dream like humans

Studies show that dogs have sleep patterns similar to humans and they dream about their favorite activities.

Dogs and two-year-olds have the same intelligence

At maturity, the average dog is as smart as a two-year-old human toddler, understanding about 150 words and knowing how to manipulate for treats.

Dogs sweat

Dogs have sweat glands in their paws, and when overheated, they will sweat from their paws. However, panting is their main way of cooling down.

Dogs aren’t color blind

Contrary to popular belief, dogs are not color blind. While they may not distinguish some colors like red and green, their world is not limited to shades of gray and black. They see a range of colors, especially blues and yellows.
