Does dogs have whiskers?
Asked in Domestic Dogs, Dog Behavior
Can dogs feel things at the end of their whiskers?
Yes, the purpose of whiskers is to sense things around them. Whiskers are about as wide as the rest of the dog's body, so a dog can figure out whether or not they can fit in something without getting stuck in the process. Just imagine whiskers being like hair, you can feel something on the end of it, and the same goes for dogs and whiskers.
Is it normal for dogs to lose a couple of their whiskers?
