Believe It or Not, You Can Speak Your Dog’s Language
Who knew you were bilingual?
According to a new study, believe it or not, you speak DOG. Or, at least, you can understand dog.
Researchers in Hungary found that people have a remarkable ability to figure out what their dog's different growls mean.
For the study, people listened to audio recordings of dogs growling and barking while they played . . . guarded their food . . . or faced a stranger who they thought was threatening. And people correctly identified what the dog was growling about 63% of the time . . . which is higher than the level of random chance.
The researchers also found women were better at speaking dog than men.
