Dogs are amazing animals, who make amazing companions, with their amazing hearts, and furry faces.

  Fun Facts About Dogs to Know More About Them It's funny that a pet we have had for hundreds of years, still manages to bring up new facts and research every day. Today, I think it would be fun to share 10 fun facts about dogs you may not know. And hey, even if you do know, stick around and leave us a comment with one of your own fun facts!

10 Fun Facts About Dogs You May Not Know:

1. It is no secret that dogs have more teeth than humans, but have you ever wondered exactly how many they have? Puppies have 28 teeth where an adult dog has a mouth full of 42 pearly whites! 2. Let's talk taste! Did you know that a cat has about 473 taste buds where a dog has in the range of 1,700! 3. Have you ever seen those dogs that kick up their paws in the dirt after going potty? Mine do! And here's why - when your dog paws the ground after having a bathroom break, they are trying to spread their scent glands to continue to mark their territory. 4. Most people know that dogs pant in order to cool their bodies down, but did you know that when they pant they can take between 300-400 breaths! That's a huge difference from their regular 30-40 breaths. 5. Have you ever wondered if your dog dreams? I mean, I think most of us who have witnessed a dog running in their sleep, or letting out little whimpers realize that yes they do dream. But some people argue this. Well... it is a fact that dogs and humans BOTH have the same type of slow wave sleep aka "SWS" and rapid eye movement aka "REM." During the REM stage, dogs do dream. I wonder what they dream about? 6. Dogs have a sense of time. Meaning - if you notice your dog seems to know exactly what time of day he normally gets his walk, or when exactly you will be walking through the door after work. You are absolutely right. They do! 7. Dogs have great sniffers. But how great? A dog's sense of smell is 1,000 to 10 million times better than yours! 8. Now we know how good their noses are, what about their ears? Well think of it this way - our range of hearing is from 64 to 23,000 hertz. Whereas a dog's range of hearing is from 67 to 45,000 hertz (cycles per second). Wait a sec... did you hear that? 9. Color blind? Nah, contrary to popular belief, dogs are not color blind, they just don't see color as vividly as humans. 10. Finally - while we already figured out how powerful your dogs nose is, did you know that the print of their nose is completely unique to each dog? Just like a humans finger print. That wraps it up for today, if you liked this post, please let me know in the comments, and I will do another top 10 list soon! Don't forget to add your own dog (or cat) fun facts below!

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
