Believe It or Not, You Can Speak Your Dog’s Language

Who knew you were bilingual?

According to a new study, believe it or not, you speak DOG.  Or, at least, you can understand dog.

Researchers in Hungary found that people have a remarkable ability to figure out what their dog’s different growls mean.

For the study, people listened to audio recordings of dogs growling and barking while they played . . . guarded their food . . . or faced a stranger who they thought was threatening.

And people correctly identified what the dog was growling about 63% of the time . . . which is higher than the level of random chance.

The researchers also found women were better at speaking dog than men.
