And it was only when both sides of the brain came to the deduction that what they were hearing was indeed praise that the dog showed signs of being happy. That means the words that a human says has to match up with the buoyant, baby tones some people use when addressing their dogs. Otherwise the pooch will likely catch onto the discrepancy!

For instance, you are not likely to get away with using an upbeat tone to persuade your dog it will be fun to visit the vet or have their nails clipped.

You might even be able to visualize what your dog’s “human” voice would sound like, as this dog dad did in the video below. Talking dog and other talking animal videos are nothing new, but that doesn’t make them any less pleasurable to watch!

Watch to see the dog’s lovable reaction to finding out he’s getting a kitten!
