Do you think it's fair to say that a dog is a toddler forever?

Recently another user told me this. Personally I don't think a dog is going to go through the, "I hate you because you won't let me have cookies for breakfast" phase. Would I still call my dog, my baby? Yes.
By the way, I just arrived in Scotland. Greetings from Edinburgh!

  • I think they just say that because a dog has about the IQ level of a 4 year old. Not the temperament though. And of course dogs die at 18 (or younger) instead of going off to college.

  • Wooo! Very jealous of your European adventure!! Have tons of fun!!

    As far as the dog thing most dogs have the intelligence of a young child. Smarter individual dogs and breeds can be as smart as like a four year old but duller breeds are more limited.

  • Anyone who's said that probably hasn't raised a toddler before. Or really sucks at training their dog.

    And greetings from the States! I've been to Edinburgh. Beautiful city.

  • Yes, in many ways where domestic dogs split off from ancestral wolves was that dogs don't 'mature' as much, which lead them to happily hang around with humans... which played out pretty well for them.
