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!

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
