Most people CAN actually speak dog

May 18, 2017

You ever feel like you can understand what your dog wants based on the sounds he or she makes? Well, turns out you're not wrong. Most people actually CAN speak dog.

They did research in Hungary and found that most people have the ability to understand what their dog wants just based on their dog's growls. In an experiment, people were able to identify what their dog's growl meant a whopping 63% of the time! 

(Although, I am wondering, how were the scientists able to correctly identify if what the participants guessed was right or not? Did they consult the dogs ahead of time? Hmmm.) 

Regardless, it seems that we all may naturally be dog whisperers. Make sure you update your LinkedIn profile to say "speaks dog".
