Dog fact – How good is a dog’s hearing?

A dogs’ super hearing

It is generally accepted that dogs hearing is about 10 times better than the hearing of people, so for example, a sound that you can hear from 25 meters away can be heard by your dog from 250 meters away (especially high pitched sounds). Dogs can locate the source of a sound very quickly and have been tested to find the direction of the sound in 1/600 of a second. Dogs can also hear ultrasonic sounds, such as the sounds made by bats and rodents that are totally inaudible to us.
