Have you ever stopped and wondered how much your dog really understands? I do all the time. I think it would be GREAT if they could talk back to us actually. Here’s the deal, maybe they don’t need to talk to them. Research is showing more and more, that dogs “Really do get us.” My guy has quite the vocabulary…and I am constantly learning more and more everyday. (Dogs constantly learn, and owners have to as well to understand THEM.)
This made me feel GREAT though when I read this article today. According to The Houston Chronicle, When you tell your dog, “I Love You,” Their heart rate actually skyrockets by 46%! Do they understand? Yep, I’d definitely say so! They went on to say too, that if you’re dog is anxious and they curl up next to you their heart rate drops 23%. I know that’s Brody’s favorite spot in the house.
