10 Fun Facts About Dogs You May Not Know!

By JennaDrady. | Dog Info

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!

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.
