Can Your Dog Read Your Mind Or Are They Just Relying On Senses?

1

Numerous dog owners are convinced that their furry pets thoroughly understand their feelings and actions.  Besides, it has long been accepted that a dog can read and respond to human body language and facial expressions. 

Whatever our thoughts on this subject may be, experts are divided – some believe dogs can actually read our minds, while others claim dogs rely on their sharp senses.

The latter opinion has a lot of scientific support.  For example, a dog’s sense of smell is 1,000 to 10,000,000 times more sensitive than a human’s.  Their astonishing sense of smell allows them to detect numerous diseases, including cancer.

Further, they can tell when you are nervous, because the scent of your perspiration changes.  In addition, they hear a wider range of frequencies than humans and detect sounds at greater distances.

Whether you believe dogs understand you because they can read you mind or just because they have such sharp senses, canines are, without a doubt, keen observers that are able to detect the smallest change in our behavior and emotions.
