There are quite a few things that you probably didn’t know about dogs, and you will definitely be interested to learn some of them.

  1. The “smell center” of a dog’s brain is 40x bigger than a human’s

Dogs are able to detect smells that humans are not able to. In fact, a dog’s ability to pick up scents is thousands of times better than people. This is precisely why dogs are frequently used to find drugs, dead bodies, explosives, and even bed bugs.

  1. Dogs dream too

Another thing that a lot of people don’t know about dogs is that they dream just like people do. Researchers discovered that dogs have a sleep pattern that is fairly similar to that of humans, and even their brain activity is similar.
