Have you ever wondered how man’s best friend sees the world? We know dogs have a much different vantage point than we do and that they are color blind. The biggest difference between the way we see and the way our canine companions see, though, is that they rely more on their wonderfully powerful noses than their eyes. Their noses give them a view of the world that we could never even imagine.

A dog’s keen sense of smell is responsible for telling them not only what kinds of things are around them, but also where items are and what they are made of. It turns out that the brain area responsible for smell, the olfactory bulb, is much larger (relative to brain size) in dogs than it is in humans. This allows them to distinguish and remember an unbelievable amount of different smells and scents.

Everything about a dog’s nose and brain makes them highly receptive to different smells. Just look at our bomb-detection, cancer-detecting, and companion dogs who are all incredibly skilled at picking up even the most minute smells! These skills not only provide help to people across the globe, but also make us marvel at our pups even more! So, sit back and enjoy learning exactly how your best friend’s adorable nose works.
