dogbigearsDogs have an incredible sense of hearing. Their hearing is almost as sensitive as their sense of smell. They can hear frequencies  from 60 to 60,000 hertz. Normal sounds that we hear are not louder for dogs. While moving around the house, dogs can not only hear the slightest noise but they can also pinpoint where it’s coming from. They can discriminate against different sounds and determine which sounds are threatening.

Research proved that dogs can identify difference in the engine sound generated by their owner’s car to that of the same model of other cars. Even in the kitchen, a dog can hear a noise and know whether that noise is associated with  his eating time. The slightest sound of the leash will determine whether it’s time for a walk or play.

Dogs memorize sounds and associate them with actions that will follow. These are only a few examples of a dogs incredible sense of hearing. Hearing is the second most dominate sense for a dog. Hearing varies from breed to breed. It’s believed that if a dog has long, droopy ears, it does not hear as well as a dog with it’s ears straight up like a German Shepherd.
