Study shows dogs really prefer to talk to babies
Do you use childish language to show love to your puppy? Many of us express our love to our dogs with a puppy or baby voice. A lively, high-pitched voice helps human babies learn the language, but dogs won’t talk (we want to!) So why talk to them with a baby voice?
If you use a baby voice, we have good news for you: science says dogs react to it.
Before we get into the details, let’s get things straight. Think about how you talk to a baby under one year of age. Do you use your usual tone or change your voice?
This is what we mean when we refer to the language of babies: talking to babies (or animals) in acute and exaggerated ways. It is said that this way of speaking helps babies learn to speak by making sounds clear. It is also said that baby talk strengthens the bonds between parents and children. Humans are nalone in doing so. Monkeys also talk to their babies this way.open next Page to See More
