Who knew you were inter-species 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.
