When I see my huskies sniffing around the house or the yard, I often wonder exactly what smells they are picking up. So I decided to do a little bit of research on the subject. One of the things I learned is there is no exact scientific research on exactly how much stronger a dogs nose is than a humans. The numbers I found ranged from 1,000 to 10,000,000 times stronger than humans, depending on the breed of dog. WOW, that is a lot stronger than our noses, that's for sure!
Did You Know?
The wetness (mucus) on a dogs nose is used to help capture scent particles? It's true. You will often notice a dog will lick his nose if it becomes dry. They want to keep that wetness there so they don't miss a beat! Or....a smell, I should say.
