Here are five fun facts about puppies from the Farmers Almanac:

  • Puppies spend up to 20 hours a day sleeping, which helps develop their brain, bodies, and immune system. In comparison, human babies spend about 16 hours a day sleeping.
  • Puppies are toothless until they are about 4 weeks old. Their hearing and vision aren’t fully developed until this time as well.
  • Researchers have discovered that looking at pictures of puppies can actually help you focus better.
  • Puppies start their canine vocalization at around 3 weeks of age, with full barks at around 16 weeks.
  • They have all their adult teeth by the time they’re 6 months old.
