Why Dogs Tilt Their Heads
It’s no secret that dogs have a sharp sense of hearing, but just how good is it? Dogs can hear a wider range of sounds than humans, and they have 16 muscles in their ears that allow them to move and turn them to hear a specific sound more precisely.
You may think that dogs, with their excellent hearing, would never need to turn their heads to the side, but you’d be wrong. Just like we do, they sometimes need to turn their heads to the side in order to hear something.
