A dog is a man’s best friend, apparently, and here is the science of why.
The latest video from ASAPScience explains just why dogs are our best mate.
With the intelligence of a 2 year old, they are actually wired up very similarly to us. That’s how they pick up on certain emotions, so know to comfort you when you’re sad.
They can understand as many as 150 different words, which is almost double that of Joey Essex.
Dogs activate the same hormonal response that triggers us to love and care for our on babies.
So there you go. It’s more than just them being cute and funny, and not a cat, which always helps.
