Dogs are your best friends. They will love you forever, no matter what, and always be there for you, just like we are here for you here at Allied Financial Services! See below for some interesting facts about the canine in your life.
It is a common myth that dogs can only see in black and white. They only have two cones in their eyes to detect colours, whereas humans have three. That means dogs see colours on a blue and yellow scale but cannot distinguish between red and green. On the other hand, they have better night vision than humans. Their eyes take in information 25% faster than us, making them specially talented at catching a ball or frisbee.
Dogs are as intelligent as a two year-old child, according to research presented to the American Psychological Association. Dogs can understand up to 250 words and gestures and even perform simple mathematical calculations. Perhaps unsurprisingly, border collies are the cleverest canines, with some able to understand up to 200 words. The other breeds in the top five are poodles, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers and Dobermans.
