Do you want to show your dog you love them on Valentine’s Day? It might be easier than you think to communicate with your dog. According to canine behaviorist Dr. Stanley Coren, a dog is able to learn around 165 words and your dog is more likely to respond to a sweet-sounding, high pitched, or excited voice. A research group in Budapest used MRI scanning to show that dogs’ brains respond to human voices in the same basic ways as humans. While humans have a smaller, more specialized part of the brain dealing with spoken language, humans and dogs both use the same area of the brain to process the emotional meaning of certain speech patterns. To tell your dog you love them, just speak to them in a loving way. You will be sure to make their Valentine’s Day.
