Did you know dogs can help you live a longer, better life?

Fun Fact #1:

Need an explanation about a dog’s night vision superpower?

It’s their whiskers — their whiskers help them see better at night. These features can pick up the subtlest changes in air current.

The result? Dogs receive information such as the shape, size, and speed of things in their environment.

Fun fact #2:

Dogs have 4x better hearing skills.

Dogs can tilt, rotate, lower — and do more — with their ears. That’s because they have about 18 muscles in each ear.

And thanks to the muscles in their ears, they can detect a frequency range of 67 to 45,000 hertz and hear high-pitched sounds.
