Is it true that one human year is equal to seven dog years?

User Avatar
Not exactly. The first year of a dog’s life is generally closer to 15 human years, and size and breed factor into how quickly dogs age. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger breeds, and they don’t become “seniors” until around 10 years, but they may mature faster in the first few years of life. A bigger dog might age more slowly in the beginning but be nearing middle age at 5 years. Medium-sized dogs fall somewhere in the middle.

Does my dog know I'm not a dog?

User Avatar
Yeah, he does. Dogs are really good at sniffing out other dogs, and they can tell by scent that you are not one. There's also evidence that dogs can clearly differentiate who's a dog and who's not by sight, so there's really no evidence that your dog thinks you're just a big dog. However, that doesn't mean he sees you as an alien. There's good evidence that your dog thinks of you like a protector—one study found that dogs are more willing to interact with an unfamiliar environment if their owners were there, exhibiting behavior very similar to how young children act with their parents. So your dog knows you're not a dog, but they still see you as family, and that's pretty sweet.

Do dogs love us back?

User Avatar
I mean, do you see that waggy tail, hear the little whines, feel the snuggles? If you think your dog doesn’t love you, maybe try a different dog. Kidding, kidding. Of course, we all want to know if those signs of affection are love, the kind that we feel for our fluffy little friends, or just, “This guy gives me food!” Obviously we can’t read a dog’s mind, but according to some promising research, yes, your dog does love you. In one study, dogs were presented with five smells (their own, a familiar dog’s, an unfamiliar dog’s, a familiar human’s, and an unfamiliar human’s) as their brains were scanned. The area of the brain associated with positive emotional response was most activated by the familiar human scent, which suggests that dogs do love us uniquely. Keep that in mind the next time they chew up your favorite shoes.
Asked by Hugh Luettgen in Poodles, Dogs, Dog Breeds

Why are poodles groomed like that?

User Avatar
That very specific grooming style (the shaved parts, the floofy tufts) actually has some thought behind it. Beyond evoking the French aristocracy, that is. Poodles weren’t bred to lounge and look down on us plebs—they were bred to be retrievers. That pattern of hair is intended to speed up their swimming while keeping their vital organs and joints warm. A poodle’s coat is also pretty difficult to maintain. Since it’s so curly and thick, it gets matted easily, requiring frequent brushing. Shaving or closely clipping parts of the dog can help make that more manageable.

How Do You Get Over A Loved One, That Passed Away?

User Avatar
When I lost my dog, I felt devastated, and after 2 years, I still cannot get over it. What helps me a little are sweet memories of the time spent together with my furry friend. Viewing the pics with my dog on them is also helpful and brings peace to my heart. Some people say, getting a new puppy helps to distract you, and keeps you busy enough not to think about your loss.

Asked by Will Schultz in Golden Retrievers, Dogs

What can I do to stop my Golden Retriever from panting?

User Avatar
Give it a buzz cut. Golden's have two layers of fur, which provides amazing insulation causing it to retain heat more than other breeds. Panting is how they cool down.
Asked by Alan Doroslovac in Dogs

Could an Australian shepherd win a fight against a German shepherd?

User Avatar
No. The German shepherd would beat up an Australian shepherd only because it is bigger. But if they were the same size the Australian shepherd would beat the German shepherd in a fight.
