1. Sense of smell
We all know dogs have a strong sense of smell, but did you know it's anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 times stronger than humans?! Crazy!

2. Myth: Dogs only see in black & white
Recent studies have disproven this widely accepted myth. While dog's eyes are able to detect far less colours than humans, it's now believed they see yellows, blues, and greys very well.

3. Dogs can detect cancer
Dogs can be trained to sniff out diseases such as cancer, diabetes, or epilepsy. As if we needed more reasons to love them!


4. Why do dogs kick after going to the bathroom?
Dogs instinctively kick after relieving themselves because their paws give off scent that communicates to other dogs that pass by the spot.

5. Where do dogs sleep?
Did you know that nearly 50% of all dogs sleep in their owners’ beds? How about yours?

6. Dogs do sweat
Dogs can actually sweat through their paws!

7. Strong smell, weak taste
Despite their acute sense of smell, dogs only have 1,700 taste buds, compared to 9,000 for humans.
