We all know dogs have been ‘man’s best friend’ for thousands of years, but there’s loads more to our four-legged friends which makes them really amazing. Here we’ve put together some of our favourite canine facts so you can learn a little more about your pooch. 


  • Dogs can be right-handed or left-handed, just like humans
  • A dog’s sense of smell is up to 40 times better than a human’s. Dogs can even be trained to sniff out cancer and predict epileptic seizures
  • Puppies are born deaf. Despite that, dogs can eventually hear four times as well as humans and detect sounds at a much higher frequency
  • Ever wondered why dogs have such expressive ears? Dogs’ ears have around 18 muscles helping them move
  • The top speed of a greyhound is a whopping 45km per hour
  • The only place that dogs sweat is through their paws. Instead, they keep cool by panting
  • Dogs have unique nose prints similar to human fingerprints
  • Dogs can learn over 100 words and gestures, making them about as intelligent as a two-year-old child
