Most dog owners will tell you that their dog is “so smart.” It turns out — they may be right. One recent study finds that dogs have the developmental abilities of a two-year-old. Researchers at the University of Florida say the average canine is capable of learning the meaning of 165 words. Another study found that dogs can interpret human body language and behavior and use it to their advantage. Researchers say dogs are more likely to beg for food from someone who is paying attention to them. That study is published in the journal “Learning and Behavior.”
