Five interesting comparisons between dogs and humans

Here are some interesting fact about dogs you might or might not know.


  • A human has 20 milk teeth and 32 permanent teeth.
  • A puppy has 28 milk teeth, and most adult dogs have 42.


  • Most humans can't hear beyond 25 yards.
  • Dogs can hear sounds 250 yards away, and they have twice as many muscles for moving their ears as people do. 


  • Humans have a visual range of 180 degrees.
  • Dogs have a visual range of 250 degrees. On the other hand, we have a larger range with clear focus, and less peripheral vision.


  • A normal breathing rate for an adult is 8 to 16 breaths per minute.
  • Dogs take between 10 and 30 breaths per minute.


  • Most humans' hearts beat 70 to 80 times a minute.
  • A dog's heart beats between 70 and 120 


  • Humans cool off by sweating.
  • Dogs cool off by panting, and through the pads of their feet.
