  • Experts feel that dogs are happy when you pet them because it makes them remember when their mothers licked them as puppies.

  • A dog pricks up his ears to listen better. Dogs can hear high-pitched sounds humans cannot, and a dog can hear and recognize the sound of the family car driving down the road on its way home. Dogs can even recognize the sound of your footsteps.

  • Dogs don't sweat through their tongues. Dogs can only sweat through their noses and paw pads. Dogs pant when they're hot because the cooler air rushing in their mouths only makes them feel cooler.

  • A dog can run up to 19 miles per hour when running at full speed, but the members of the greyhound family can run up to 42 miles per hour.

  • A dog’s hearing is much greater than a human’s, especially for high-pitched sound. Dogs can hear sounds that are ultrasonic. If a dog suddenly pricks up its ears and becomes alert for no apparent reason, he might have detected bat or rodent sounds that are not heard by human ears.

  • Dogs have many strange habits. One is the tendency to lick their most private parts. Even though this sounds perverse, it serves an important purpose. The dog’s genitourinary tract will not function without the stimulation that comes from frequent licking.

  • Small dogs live the longest. Toy breeds can live 16 years or more. Larger dogs average 7-12 years. Veterinary medicine has extended these estimates by about three years. However, some breeds, such as Tibetan terriers, live as long as 20 years.

  • Dogs that are left alone for long periods of time howl because they are lonely. The purpose of the howl in the wild is to gather the pack so they can face impending danger together. The group howl is also a type of bonding experience.

  • Dogs often hesitate before going out in the rain. It’s not because they are afraid of getting wet, but because the rain amplifies sound and hurts their sensitive ears.

  • Studies show that a lovingly handled dog is a healthier dog. The touch of the human hand improves the functions of virtually all the sustaining systems: respiratory, circulatory, digestive and so on. A frequently petted newborn puppy is not only healthier and happier; it will also be a better behaved dog. Dogs, like humans, find solace in touching another living being, which is another reason why they get along so well together.

  • The bark of a dog often acts as an alarm. Its purpose is to let people, as well as other dogs, know that something, whether that be an approaching intruder or a stray, is trying to invade a dog’s territory. In the wild, the bark of a dog tells the puppies to take cover and hide, and also alerts the other dogs in the pack to assemble for action. An out and out attack by a dog, however, is silent.

  • Did you know that the average dog has 42 permanent teeth in its mouth?

  • The relationship between man and his dog is a special one. It is no wonder, then, that more and more healthcare practitioners are recommending that their patients adopt a dog to help them through periods of illness. There are many instances on record that describe how the companionship of a loyal, loving pet has helped ailing people get better.

  • A frightened dog puts his tail between his legs because it cuts off the scent glands in its anal region, which is a very vulnerable part of the anatomy. Since the anal glands carry personal scents that identify the individual dogs, the tail between the legs action is the dog’s equivalent of insecure humans hiding their faces.

  • To train your dog to give you his paw, say, “Give me your paw” (or whatever phrase you prefer). Then tap on his front leg or tickle it. When he picks up his paw, take it in your hand and praise him. Do this repeatedly until your dog responds.

  • Dogs love to chew bones. It strengthens and cleans their teeth. But never give your dog poultry bones as they are soft and could be swallowed whole or splinter inside the dog’s stomach.
