Question
Can dogs talk?

Answer
Sunstream,

Thank you for your question

There have been times when I needed my dog to talk but all they can do is listen but they do understand us. An adult dog has the IQ of a 3 year old child and can understand about 300 words.

I have seen dogs on TV cry out the word "momma" but I don't think they know what they were saying.

They are there to listen to our happiest days and our saddest moments and that is pretty cool.
