Absolutely they understand what we are saying!!! There was a study done on dogs to see who is the most intelligent. They actually did two of them. In the first study, the top two intelligent dogs were first, Golden Retrievers, second, Poodles!!!
In the next study, the top two were, First a Border Collie, and second, Poodles!
I talk to little April all the time and depending on what I'm saying she will run to what I'm talking about. for instance, if I say, You want to put a dress on? she RUNS to the bedroom closet where they are hanging and does the Poodle dance, you know, the one where they are up on their hind lets bouncing and spinning!!! If I say, I've gotta get some food in my tummy she runs to the kitchen. If I'm eating something that she can't have, like grapes, I just say, this isn't for Poodles. and she lays down and doesn't even bother to look at me.
It's believed that Poodles know about 200 words. I believe it!!!
