Hearing From Your Pet’s Perspective

While people enjoy what we consider to be a rich range of sounds, our everyday hearing pales in comparison to our furry or feathered friends. Able to recognize sounds far lower or higher than our ears can accommodate, many pets enjoy a world of sound we can’t even begin to appreciate.

Dogs have a much broader range of hearing than their human friends.
