Drying Time at the Beach: Vancouver, BC

category: Dogs • 1 min read

These two dogs were playing very well together. They went in the water and chased each other in the water, but it’s hard to run in the water, so they decided to come back on dry land (kind of) and now it’s time for the big shake.

People at Georgia Tech took extremely high speed videos of dogs shaking their fur. It turns out that dogs shake about 70% of the water in their fur in only 4 seconds. They also found that dogs shake at around 4 time per second for the Labrador Retrievers. The smaller the dog, the faster the dog shakes.
