Knowledge Bumps?

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Okay, the technicalities, "This large bump on the dogs head is actually the occipital bone which can be more prominent in both breeds and individual dogs."  For those who don't know what I'm talking about, some dogs, have a bump on the top rear part of their heads, other have a smaller one or none at all. 

 

Commonly called the "knowledge bump", "smart bump" and a few other things.  It's said the the larger, more pronounced that bone is the smarter, more intelligent the dog is.

 

Of my two, Avalanche has a very pronounced knowledge bump and without doubt he's the more intelligent of the two. 

 

So, what's your experience with dogs and their knowledge bumps???

Harry doesn't have one and he is totally stupid! :)

 

Though when he eats his head structure changes and moves a lot, it's like his skull is loose and not properly fused, so funny to watch!

I can literally see ices across the room from where I'm sitting. Lol. I know from memory that Bear has a large lump on her head (bigger than ices) and my Brooke, poor little staffy girl has no bump I can feel but does have a "split" skull at the front, where her head got wider as sge grew up and 'dips' in the centre like a wave. Maybe that's her own special version of a knowledge bump......a knowledge dip, lol. Let's face it bull breeds are more Braun over brain at the best of times. :)
