Distinctive Characteristics of the Dog Family

In the process of looking for something interesting to share regarding dogs, I came across a list of the distinctive characteristics of the dog family.


Can you come up with five distinctive characteristics?


42 teeth

They walk on their toes

They have four claws on their hind feet, and 5 on the front

They have two coats- an outer coat of coarse hair, and an inner coat of fine hair

They have a keen sense of smell

They have excellent hearing due to ear flaps called "leathers"

They can see colors, but not as clearly as we can

How many did you get?
