Why Do Dogs Love Us And Many Other Dog Facts Plus 4 Dog Treat Recipes

The hormone oxytocin is released in humans and in dogs when we interact or have contact with someone we like. This 'love hormone' helps cement and increase the bond both humans and dogs share :)

Dogs have a sense of time and they know the difference between a hour and 5 and they get so conditioned they can predict future events, such as regular walk times. So if you come home the same time every day and even if you sneak in your house your dog is in the same spot waiting for you it's because they have the sense of time and it is not dog voodoo :)

Have you ever wondered why children around the age of 2 get along so well with dogs it's because dogs are as smart as 2-year-olds and they speak the same language, roughly 250 words and gestures :)

Dogs feel jealousy when you show affection for another creature. We've all had a dog that never liked our significant other or when we patted the cat :)

Your dog can smell your feelings. In fact, your dog’s sense of smell is approximately 100,000 times better than yours. So it shouldn’t be shocking that they can in fact, smell things such as fear. When a human is fearful, they perspire, and a dog is easily able to pick up on this change :)

Have you ever noticed when you're sitting on the couch and your dog is beside you and you're petting them and you feel calm and relaxed it's because petting a dog can actually benefit your physical and mental health. Studies have shown that petting a dog for 15 minutes can lower blood pressure by 10%, can help lower feelings of stress, depression, and combat loneliness :)

If your dog experiences separation anxiety try leaving some clothes with him that you've worn. It has been proven that the sent you leave behind on your clothes can help ease your dog's separation anxiety :)

Chocolate can be very deadly to dogs due to containing the ingredient, theobromine. Dogs cannot metabolize theobromine and ingesting chocolate could cause a severely toxic buildup in their system which could become fatal :(

If you have allergies and you want a dog get a Maltese dog because they do not shed :)

A vast majority of strays that end up in shelters are pets who are lost simply because they don't have any identification. Fourth of July is the busiest time for animal shelters as most pets get lost during that holiday due to being scared of loud fireworks and running away. My poor dog would shake and cry when the fireworks went off :(
