The average dog has the mental abilities of a two-year-old human. How cool is that?
A dog, like a two-year-old, understands about 165-250 words, depending on the intelligence of the dog (or human) in question.
When it comes to social intelligence, dogs are more advanced than the average toddler because their lives are slightly more complex - closer to that of a teenager. According to Live Science, dogs are mainly interested in social status (who’s the head of the pack) and mating (who’s sleeping with who). Sound familiar?
