Sorry cat lovers, but dogs are awesome! As it turns out, they really do understand us!!!
According to a new study out of Hungary, dogs don’t just understand words, but they also understand the intonation used to speak them. This means dogs are more like humans, using the same portion of the brain as people.
The example given by the Washington Post basically says that not matter what tone you use when you say the word “vet”, your dog still knows he’s going to the vet. Unfortunately, that also means that your pup understands he’s not supposed to pee on the floor.
“So dogs not only tell apart what we say and how we say it, but they can also combine the two, for a correct interpretation of what those words really meant.”
