FUN FACT ABOUT DOGS NOSES:
They have up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, versus only about 6 million for us. And the part of their brain dedicated to interpreting these is about 40 times larger than ours Dogs can smell up to 100,000 times better than humans.
A dog’s nose has two functions—smelling and breathing.
Dogs have the ability to breathe in and out at the same time.
Dogs have a special organ that gives them a “second” sense of smell.
Dogs can smell separately with each nostril. Just as our eyes compile two slightly different views of the world, and our brain combines them to form a 3-D picture, a dog’s brain uses the different odor profiles from each nostril to determine exactly where smelly objects are located.
Some breeds have a better sense of smell than others. Dogs can smell the passage of time. Dogs can detect the tiny reductions in the concentrations of odor molecules that occur over short periods of time.
This allows tracking dogs to quickly determine which direction a person or animal has gone
