Dogs Man's Best Friend

Researchers at a university in Hungary say there is truth to what many dog owners always believed. Dogs do understand what humans say.
The researchers made images of the brains of 13 dogs using a machine that records brain activity. The brain imaging showed dogs processed words using the left side of their brains, just as humans do. They use the right side of their brains to understand tone and pitch.
The study showed dogs understand words and how they are said. Meaningful words said in a neutral way did not have the same effect as the same words said in an encouraging way.
