Wow dog facts!
- Their noses are very important to them!
Have you noticed that dogs’ noses are wet? This happens because their noses can absorb some substances to help them understand their environment better. Once these substances are absorbed, dogs lick their noses and get a taste of the world around them!
- And so are they ears!
Dogs have a very strong sense of hearing. In fact their hearing is ten times more accurate than that of humans. They can also hear sounds coming from a great distance away and that is why many dogs move their ears to different directions. No wonder they have 18 muscles that help them move their ears!
- They have a lot of… eyelids!
More specifically, dogs have three eyelids! The third one is used to protect their eye and keep it wet.
- Dogs have their own “fingerprints”
But they are once again on their nose! Just like a human’s fingerprint, a dog’s nose print is unique!

- Puppies are like human babies!
When a puppy is born, it is completely dependent on its mother to drink milk or stay warm. Newborn puppies cannot walk and their eyes are closed for some weeks.
