800 breeds?[change source]

The article says there are 800 breeds but there are only about 400 breeds! --82.207.190.204 21:32, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Simple English[change source]

This page is not in Simple English. Someone should fix that. Kennercat (talk) 18:28, 29 May 2008 (UTC)


More Description[change source]

Should describe what dogs actually look like more than just relying on pictures.

Hearing Range??[change source]

I don't believe dogs can hear 5000 miles away...the "regular" Wikipedia page states that dogs can hear things up to four times the distance that humans can. (That would mean that humans could hear things from 1250 miles away!!) Audball911 (talk) 21:52, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Color blind[change source]

Color-blindness can have many definitions, ranging from partial inability to distinguish between colors to being totally color-blind, e.g., only being able to see black, white, and shades of gray. Dogs have dichromatic color blindness - which means they cannot see red or green. What humans see as red, dogs see as brown; and green grass appears blue to dogs. I would clarify this in the article, but it is protected and I am new to simple English Wikipedia.THD3 (talk) 16:43, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

How long do dogs live?[change source]

The article reads: Dogs usually live about 10 years or more. This is not precise, look here. I would write: Dogs usually live about 10 to 15 years. 85.193.232.158 (talk) 08:04, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

I have rewritten the section, and given some examples. --Eptalon (talk) 09:38, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. 85.193.232.158 (talk) 04:00, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Add a Link[change source]

There ought to be a link to the page on domestication (this word appears in the first paragraph of the article).

Thank you for noticing; I fixed the error. Ever thought about creating an account, and getting autoconfirmed status? --Eptalon (talk) 20:56, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
