One thought on “How many whiskers does a dog have?

  1. Arti says:

    If you cut or trim your dog’s whiskers, it will disorient him. With this reduced sensory input of information your dog may become shy, meek, timid, or unsure of his surroundings and might move in a strange way. He may even become scared, which can cause aggression in his behavior or a short temper. These whiskers, known as vibrissae, pick up shifts in airflow so that a dog can gather information about its surroundings. Dogs can have up to 20 whiskers on each side of their upper lips, depending on the size and breed of the dog.
