Dogs know what you’re saying, study suggests

Scientists have found evidence to support what many dog owners have long believed: man’s best friend really does understand some of what we’re saying.

They found that dogs processed words with the left hemisphere, while intonation was processed with the right hemisphere – just like humans.

Researchers at the University of Nottingham believe that the study could help explain the reported significant decline in human semen quality.
