Do you like to talk to your dog? New studies suggest they can totally understand you.
A study published in the journal Science reveals that dogs use the same brain areas as humans to process languages.
Left hemispheres process words and right hemispheres process intonation.
Dogs therefore only understand they are being praised if the words and intonation both match.
So yes, your pups do care what you say and how you say it.
That explains so much doesn’t it?
