Scent Training for Dogs

Dogs see the world through their nose

Dogs rely heavily on their sense of smell to understand the world around them. A dogs nose contain up to 300 million olfactory receptors, compared to the 6 million found in the human nose. This allows them to detect even the faintest of scents. When dogs sniff they inhale and exhale air through separate channels in their nose, allowing them to continuously take in new scents without interrupting their breathing. Dogs will gather a vast amount of information about their surroundings, such as identifying people, other animals, and even changes in the weather.
