When Compared humans, a dog’s hearing range is approximately twice as broad or wide.

A Dog’s capacity to detect sounds between 67-45,000 Hz, while humans can detect sounds between 64-23,000.

When certain sounds are being tuned to a higher frequency, one greater than that of the dog’s hearing range – frequencies above 36,000 hertz can be painful to dogs; the sounds can cause dog irritation and discomfort. – Thereby leading to whining or barking.

A dog’s ability to hear can be damaged due to prolonged exposure to loud noises beyond their normal hearing frequency – just like human hearing.
