Dogs are amazing, that’s for sure. But if you weren’t sure about their ‘superpowers’ yet, we recommend you read this article. We show you some more than amazing things that dogs can do without problems.
Amazing things dogs do
There’s no need to convince anyone… Dogs are the best thing in the world! They accompany us, they take care of us, they give us unconditional love, and they can also do certain things that make them exceptional beings:
1. They pay attention if you talk like an adult
When we run into a dog, be it ours, strange or unknown, we can’t avoid it… We start talking like a baby! We change our tone of voice and use diminutive words.
From now on you won’t do it anymore or you’ll avoid making a fool of yourself with the dog. That’s right because dogs behave according to what they hear. And if you talk ‘funny’ to them, they won’t pay attention to you or listen to you. They think they’re not referring to them, and they make ‘deaf ears’ to your words. It doesn’t matter if he’s a poodle or a Great Dane, he’ll act the same way.
2. They recognize the signs of change in your face
You don’t have to talk to them then. Moving your eyes, lips or expression is enough for them. Dogs can recognize when a person is happy, angry or tired just by looking at his face.
So, when your pet misbehaves and you make ‘an accusing look’ at him, he will automatically realize that he did something wrong and will hide or apologize to you in his own way. And it’s not out of remorse, because he lacks that emotion, but because he reacts in this way every time he recognizes anger in the face of his owner.
3. They laugh
You’ve probably seen a lot of videos or images in which dogs have a big smile and you’ve thought why your pet doesn’t do the same (or you haven’t discovered it yet).
You should know that dogs laugh for different reasons than humans. For example, to ask their owners to pay attention and give them affection. Even if you see that he has a smile on his face, perhaps it is because he is anxious or needs to calm down.
4. They manipulate you
If you thought that only Shrek’s cat was capable of making those ‘poor thing’ eyes and getting what he wants, it’s because you don’t have a dog at home. Dogs are perfect actors and they know how to manipulate us!
Dogs are more than cunning and know the weaknesses of every member of the family. Do they want food, a toy, a belly massage or a bed? They’ll do whatever it takes to get it! Even ask the owner to grant their wish, because they remember how it has been in the past. If you give it from your plate, but your partner doesn’t, the next time he wants food, it will go straight to you.
5. Lick to show affection
Dogs have different ways of saying that they love us, but without a doubt, the licking is the most used. Just as mothers use their tongues to clean their puppies, the other dogs as they grow up use this attitude to express that they like to be by our side.
They probably want to lick your face, but they can also lick your face on other parts of your body, such as your arms or even your feet. And for them, it’s also a way of calming down and feeling comforted by the contact with their owner!
6. They imitate our personality
I’m sure you know the saying, “Dogs look like their owners.” And we’re not just talking about something physical, but also about personality. They can acquire different traits from the people with whom they have most contact because we humans transmit them from anxiety to calm.
For this reason, perhaps if you’re back and forth at home, or with a lot of problems, your pet will behave badly and want to attract attention. But if you find yourself relaxed drinking tea on the couch, he will lie at your feet and fall asleep peacefully.
Did you know all these dog skills? There is no doubt that they are wonderful beings, who changed our lives forever.
