Canine Friends Feel The Love
Lily and Bailey.

It looks like dogs may realize when their owner tells them “I love you.”

Canine Cottages’ new study followed four dogs for a week while tracking their heart rates. When the owners told their dogs they loved them, the dog’s heart rates increased on average 46-percent.

The study also found dogs’ heart rate decreases by 23-percent on average when they cuddled with their owners.
