Well, folks, a new study shows that dogs really do not understand what you are saying to them. Yes, they do understand la limited number of command words. However not the nuances as they associate similar words that sound like them as the same. This was discovered through wiring them brain pattern recognition machines. With pads taped to their heads. Consequently, they are quite oblivious of anything apart from words they are used to. This has been known for some time only know scientifically confirmed. This may come as a surprise to people who are convinced their canine friends do understand them. If one thinks about the few words that dogs respond to their whole lives they are indeed minimal. Conversations, therefore, are meaningless to them. The next study should concentrate on their emotional response.
