5 Facts on How Your Dog’s Mind Works

Here is a fun article for all dog lovers and dog owners out there. Now most of us love dogs and would like to have them as pets. However, you might wonder what goes through their minds or why they behave in a certain way. This article is going to show you how a dog’s mind is similar to a human mind – albeit a small child’s mind. We hope to show you with the help of 5 facts on how your dog’s mind works that a dog’s mind is also amazing in its own right. We hope this helps you understand and love your dog more.

A Mixture of Affection and Love

Similar to children, teenagers and even some adults; dogs remain mentally and psychologically healthy and happy when they are given love, attention and discipline in equal measures. While love and attention is great for dogs, discipline is also very important, in terms of showing them what is correct and incorrect behaviour. If dog owners don’t discipline their dogs properly then the dogs remain confused about what is right and wrong and it may continue to behave badly. This is the same for children who need love and discipline to ground them.

Dogs are as Smart as Small Children

Even people who have never owned a single dog in their lives know how smart they are. Recent research shows that an average dog is as smart as a two year old toddler. This means that a dog can learn to count, understand 150 words, solve simple problems and play games and tricks with each other and people. If that isn’t smart then we really don’t know what is.

Dogs’ Understand Vocal Tones

Another amazing thing about dogs is they recognize different voice tones and understand what is meant by them. While a dog may not have the lingual ability of a toddler they recognize different tones quite easily. If you call your dog’s name out in a warm and friendly tone they will come up to you happily. If you call out their name angrily then they will come up to you fearfully. They can pick up fear in your voice too.

The Power of the Bark

Just like children understand the power of crying and wailing; dogs understand the power of their bark. Children will often cry to get their parents attention or to get what they want. Similarly a dog might bark to get their owner’s attention or to get their demands met. Just as in the case of disciplining a child we can’t let the dog’s bark dissuade us from disciplining it. If we meet every whim of the dog’s it will misbehave again.

The Green Eyed Monster:

Similar to humans, dogs feel a range of emotions some good and others bad. Just like us dogs feel happy, sad and angry. Interestingly recent research shows that dogs also feel a complicated emotion like jealousy. However, their jealousy is different from ours, not at the same level, not with the same complexities; but sill present.
