Dogs know how people feel – level 1

07-12-2022 15:00

Dogs know how people feel. They know if someone is sick. A study explains these situations.

Our bodies smell differently if we feel stress. Dogs have more than 200 million parts in the nose. The parts connect to their brain. People have only 50 million. Dogs’ brains are different, too. Dogs can smell much better than people. They can smell things which people cannot.

Dogs can also detect some types of cancer. They know if someone has the coronavirus. We smell differently when we are sick. Dogs know very quickly when our smell changes.

Difficult words: stress (worried and nervous), detect (to find something), cancer (some parts of the body start to grow without control).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
