People don't know a lot about dogs, though, and consider them family. Often, people unknowingly or is it really true,
speaks about dog behavior on what dogs are thinking and so on. In this way, in societies soaring quite a few myths about
dogs. I will talk about the myths that are popular, but not based on, and about the facts, which are proved.
Fact. Dogs can look at you with love.
When your dog looks at you, his gaze can really be full of love. People in this
situation often thought that the dog as asks for dinner or just a tasty morsel,
but this is not always the case. The close relationship between dog and master
can cause dog's this unusual behavior. Of course, such look does not always mean exactly that.
Myth. Dogs see the world in black and white.
Dog experts and researchers say that this is a myth because dogs see blue, purple colors and more shades of
gray than people. They also see well in dim light and separates even little movement. True, the dogs will
probably not distinguish between red, orange, yellow or green colors.
Myth. Dog wagging tail, because he is happy.
Tails wag can mean three different dog moods. If only the tail raised high, it means that the dog is
alarmed and ready to defend himself. When the tail hangs down and the dog wagging it very quickly, it
means that the dog is scared and obedient. Only when a dog wagging its tail in the natural medium height means that the dog is happy.
Myth. A warm nose means the dog is sick.
A dog's nose temperature can change very quickly, so it is not a good indicator of the disease. For
example, the nose can be warm, because the dog was lying in the sun, also nose can be cold, because the dog drank cold water.
Fact. Limp may indicate lungs problems.
There are cases that the dog's limp means lung cancer. Cancer in the chest can lead to leg bones to produce
new tissue, resulting in swelling of the feet and the dogs they hurt. Foot problems are solved when the cancer is curable.
Myth. Dogs need bones.
This myth comes from the idea that ancient wolves ate a lot of bones. Now, all the necessary nutrients
and calcium dogs gets from food. Bones just irritates the intestines and can cause serious harm, so it
is better to give dogs chew on special tasty treats and toys.
Myth. When the dog lick the wound, it heals faster.
This is one of the most popular myths, which is completely wrong. Dog saliva is not really magical,
and it does not cure. On the contrary, the mouth bacteria can cause infection and slow healing. In
this case, dogs are placed a special collar that the dog would not be able to flatter the wound.
