One Of Life’s Baffling Mysteries – The Infamously Adorable Head Tilt!
There are many educated guesses as to what a dog’s adorable headtilt means. This cute monologue has baffled many dog owners, but it is time that we dive deep and figure out its meaning!
According to a survey conducted by Dr. Stanley Coren, that super-cute, head tilt has more to do with improving your dog’s sight than their hearing.
Dogs are constantly scanning our faces for cues. Much how a humans can tell when someone is lying to them or if someone is expressing a certain emotion, dogs can also detect such things from facial recognitions. Coren found that only 52% of the brachycephalic dogs (breeds with flatter faces like Pugs and Boston Terriers) tilted their heads when spoken to, while dogs with a more pronounced muzzle showed a 71% tilt rate.
Whether they are adjusting their eyesight, or whether they are trying to fill us with joy, nothing changes the fact that they are the most adorable little things in the world!
