About dogs behavior
  • Your dog can easily read your body language and emotions. He studies your gestures and your face to understand if you had a good day.

  • Dogs curl up into a ball when they sleep to protect their organs. They picked up this habit when they lived in the wild to protect themselves from predator attacks.

  • Contrary to popular belief, wolves in the wild have no hierarchy in their pack. The dominance-subordination relationship of humans with dogs is therefore irrelevant in explaining the aggressive behavior of a companion dog. This one is not “poorly hierarchical” but rather resulted from a learning problem.

  • A dog's sense of smell is exceptional because its nose has up to 300 million receptors. By comparison, a human nose has about 5 million.
