8 Myths About Dogs

All dogs go to heaven. A dog is man’s best friend. He’s 21 in dog years. You hear a lot about dogs, but are the myths and saying that you hear true? Here’s a look at some common myths about dogs.

Are dogs colorblind?

The idea that dogs can only see varying shades of gray dates back to the early 1900s. However, research suggests that while dogs can’t see the same colors that people see, dogs are not color blind.

Can all dogs swim?

Many dogs are fantastic swimmers, but not all dogs are born knowing how to swim. Goldendoodles are great swimmers, but many dogs cannot swim. That’s why it’s important to make sure that your dog knows how to swim before taking him out on the water.

Is a dog’s mouth cleaner than a human’s mouth?

A dog’s mouth is full of bacteria and microbes just like a human’s mouth. Dogs can get dental disease just as easily as a human can. If you brush your teeth on a regular basis, your mouth is cleaner than your dog’s mouth.

Do dogs have a sixth sense?

You may hear that dogs can see ghosts, they can sense death, or they can predict natural disasters before they occur. There’s a good explanation for many of the superstitions you hear about dogs, however.

Do dogs age seven times faster than humans?

A “dog year” is the equivalent of seven years. When you hear someone say that their dog is 42 in dog years, they mean to say that their dog is six years old. While it’s true that dogs age at a much faster rate than humans, it’s not quite as simple as a seven to one ratio.

Chocolate is lethal to dogs

It’s true that chocolate is toxic to dogs. Chocolate isn’t necessarily lethal to your dog, however. The type of chocolate, the amount of chocolate, and the size of your dog determine how serious it is if your dog eats chocolate.

Dogs eat grass to make themselves sick

You feed your dog the daily recommended amount of food based on his weight, so why is he out in the yard eating grass? Is he trying to make himself sick?

While many believe that dogs eat grass to help remove something from their systems or because they lack something in their diet, research suggests that this just isn’t the case.

Dogs typically eat grass because they like the way that it tastes, or out of sheer boredom.
