This is something I have known for a long time! Because when I get back from vacation Bailey ignores me. Legit. Watch her. This is what I get when I come back. NOTHING! I know she hears me and now science says she understands what I am saying.
The study comes from Hungary and they says that dogs recognize whether the words you say are praising them, disciplining them or they are neutral. I truly believe Bailey understands ever single word I am saying.
A new study out of Hungary took brain scans of dogs when their owners talked to them, and it found they recognize whether the words you say are praising them, disciplining them, or neutral.
