Title: Fun Facts About Dogs


1
Fun Facts About Dogs
2
Dogs have become one of the most beloved pets on
the planet.
3
Their loyalty and obvious affection for mankind
are legendary.
4
Beyond the emotional satisfaction they give to
us, they display some amazing and interesting
qualities.
5
Here are just some of them.
6
The Body Language of a Dog's Tail
7
Dogs express themselves through body language the
same as people do.
8
That little tail on the rear of the dog speaks
volumes.
9
Dogs use their tails, whether consciously or
unconsciously, to talk to humans, other dogs,
and other animals.
10
If the tail is stiff and straight, it usually
means that the dog is expressing aggression.
11
A wagging tail may not mean that a dog is happy.
12
If it wags to the right, it probably means the
dog is happy.
13
Studies show, however, that if it wags to the
left, it means he is frightened.
14
If a dog is wagging his tail slowly back and
forth, and his body is rigidly pointing in your
direction, stay out of his space.
15
The Wonders of a Dog's Nose
16
A dog's sense of smell is more than 10,000 times
greater than that of man.
17
The mucous on the surface of a dog's nose helps
him to define a scent, as well as helping him to
determine the direction it is coming from.
18
There are some smells that are undetectable to
man but can be discerned by a dog.
19
This is why dogs are trained to sniff out drugs,
human scent and blood, insects, and even the
presence of bombs.
20
Recent studies have also shown that dogs can
smell cancer in the body of a human.
21
The Homing Instinct in a Dog
22
There are amazing true stories about dogs that
became lost or separated from their owners and
literally crossed thousands of miles to
successfully find their owners again.
23
It remains a scientific mystery as to how dogs
can do this, but one theory that has been
suggested is that dogs have a homing instinct
that is sensitive to the earth's magnetic fields.
24
They are able to map out landmarks, scents and
sounds by a kind of an inner compass.
25
The interesting thing is that researchers have
discovered that if magnets are attached to a
dog's body, they lose their sense of direction.
26
The Perfect Weather Dog
27
Dog's ears contain more than eighteen muscles,
and a dog can hear in both low and high frequency.
28
When a storm is on its way, a dog can hear low
rumblings before we can.
29
He is more sensitive to a drop in barometric
pressure that signals a storm is on its way.
30
It has also been suggested that a dog may be able
to smell the metallic scent given off by
lightning.
31
Some dogs are highly fearful of storms. They will
bark, shake, hide, or soil the carpet.
32
If your dog is overly frightened by storms,
experts say you should command him to sit and
stay and then reward him for staying calm with a
treat.
33
There are also medications your veterinarian can
give you to help calm your dog through his
anxious episodes.
34
A dog is more than man's best friend.
35
Dogs have proven invaluable, because of their
unique physiology, in helping man in a number of
useful ways.
36
Are you thinking about getting a beautiful
portrait of your pet?
