30 Insane Facts About Dogs You Probably Didn’t Know (INFOGRAPHIC)

As a proud parent of a little Pomeranian girl, I often say that I know everything there is to know about her behaviors and how she reacts to different situations. However, even though she is with us for over 12 years, there are still some facts that I don’t know about dogs.


It’s always fun to discover all the different things about our beloved furkids. Dogs have the most complex social behavior of all the animal kingdom, so there are lots of things to learn about them. That’s why when I found this great infographic, I thought it was worth sharing. It is packed with a multitude of fun facts about dogs.

The infographic is created by DogBuddy, a UK website that provides services for dogs, like:

  • Dog sitting
  • Dog walking
  • Doggy day care
  • Home dog boarding
  • Dog kennel alternative

They have an amazing blog where you can find great articles about dogs. Click here if you want to check it out!

Did you know?

A dog’s love is unconditional. Their love has no boundaries, and there is actually a scientific explanation about this. Dogs’ brains release hormones when they interact with humans, and one of those hormones is called oxytocin. This hormone also called the love hormone, is the same one that helps to create a special bond between mother and child.

Did you know that a dog’s nose is like a human fingerprint? That dogs only have 1,700 tastebuds compared to humans who have a grand total of 9,000? Or that the oldest dog lived until he was almost 30 years old?

  1. Hi, Nataly

    I am dog lover and addict to them (I am also a cat lover).
    The list of facts (some of them are funny) are very useful for me to understand them better.
    For example, they only have sweat glands between their paw pads so it is important to avoid overheating them during the summer.



    1. Hi Stella,

      I’m glad that the infographic helped you understand dogs better. And yes, knowing that they only have sweat glands between paw pads is very important because it means that they can overheat very fast in the summer.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Monday! 🙂



  2. Hi Nataly,

    This was an interesting infographic. I didn’t know dogs went back that many years. I learned more about dogs reading this…I knew about the sweat glands but I didn’t know they slept in a ball to protect their vital organs…very interesting. 🙂

    I love cuddling with my furbabies, they can make the craziest day better. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this. I really admire your love for dogs!

    Hope you’re having a great day my dear!



    1. Hey Cori,

      I didn’t know either that dogs slept in a ball to protect their vital organs. Nature is very well made!

      I also love to cuddle with Myrka. You’re right, it can really make a crazy day better. 🙂

      Glad you learned a little bit more about dogs with this infographic, gf! Happy Monday! 😉



  3. Loved this Nataly.
    I don’t have a dog right now – but I want one. The timing is off for right now, but eventually I do plan on rescuing one.

    I’m crazy about them. At least I get my fix when I visit family 🙂
    What a great amount of info here. I loved learning how some of Michael Vick’s fighting dogs became therapy dogs.
    SO happy to know this.

    I know so many dog owners/lovers. They’ll get a kick out of this.


    Thanks for putting this together.


    1. Hi Dana,

      I’m so glad to learn that you’re gonna rescue a dog when you’ll get one!

      I was also happy to learn about the Michael Vick’s dogs and how they became therapy dogs. That’s awesome! 🙂

      Thanks a lot for sharing my post, gf! Happy Monday to you! 😉



  4. Hi Nataly,

    You have written about my favorite thing in the world…dogs! I always had a dog and have two of them now. I love the ifographic What great stuff! I have a Blue Tick Hound. This breed can smell a cold trail many days old. They are bread to track racoons. But my little guy is a couch potato, sleeps with us and is a bundle of love.

    Whenever I am injured or feeling ill, he will go to the spot and start licking me. Recently I had oral surgery. Needless to say, I got some facial with his tongue he he he. But I let him do it because it is his job…to heal.

    The other is an Eskipoo (American Eskimo and Poodle) Half dead when we adopted him and took two full years for him to eat comfortably. He is my protector that comes from the A.Eskimo breed. He stays by my side always.

    I cannot imagine life without a dog.



    1. Hi Donna,

      Dogs is also my favorite thing in the world! LOL!

      Blue Tick Hound is such a beautiful dog! And it’s great that yours is so affectionate and that he sleeps with you. Myrka also sleeps with us and she also licks the injured spot just like your dog does.

      That’s awesome that you rescued and nursed back to health your Eskipoo. So great!

      Thanks for stopping by Donna! Happy Monday! 🙂
