Dogs Recognize Faces Of Their Own Species, Video Experiment Shows

They may have the largest physical variety among all animal species on Earth, but dogs can still recognize one of their own over any other animal based on simple images of their faces.
Since their domestication somewhere between 15,000 and 100,000 years ago, dogs have been learning to use facial cues as an important part of their social communication. When interacting with us, dogs can read and use our facial expressions to gauge where our attention lies and sometimes what we’re feeling.
