Knowing dogs facts can help dog owners to predict their dogs’ actions and realize the reasons behind them. But to be clear, whether you are a dog person or not, the following weird facts will blow your mind and surprise you!


     1. Dogs do dream! Dogs and humans have the same type of slow wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye dog120movement (REM) and during this REM stage dogs can dream. The twitching and paw movements that occur during their sleep are signs that your pet is dreaming
2. It’s not a fever…A dog’s normal temperature is between 101 and 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit. So keep calm and don’t panic! It’s normal!
3. Move over Rover! 45% of dogs sleep in their owner’s bed (we’re pretty sure a large percentage also hog the blankets!) Admit it! this doesn’t upset you. Right?!
4. Watch that plate of cookies! A Dog’s sense of smell is 10,000 – 100,000 times more acute as that of humans. For me, I am not surprised! What about you?!
5. Yummy! Dogs have about 1,700 taste buds. Humans have approximately 9,000 and cats have around 473.
6. Is it a duck…or a dog? The Newfoundland breed has a water resistant coat and webbed feet. This dog was originally bred to help haul nets for fishermen and rescuing people at risk of drowning.
7. Here’s looking at you. Dogs have three eyelids, an upper lid, a lower lid and the third lid, called a nictitating membrane or “haw,” which helps keep the eye moist and protected.
8. It’s not so black and white. It’s a myth that dogs only see in black and white. In fact, it’s believed that dogs see primarily in blue, greenish-yellow, yellow and various shades of gray.
9. Chase that tail! Dogs chase their tails for a variety of reasons: curiosity, exercise, anxiety, predatory instinct or, they might have fleas! If your dog is chasing his tail excessively, talk with your vet.
10. Dogs have wet noses. Dogs’ noses secrete a thin layer of mucous that helps them absorb scent. They then lick their noses to sample the scent through their mouth.
