What’s that smell?


A dog’s nose is an amazing thing!




nose0709We know that dog’s are quite adept at many things but their power of smell is to be truly admired. Multiple research shows that we are just “sniffing” at the surface of what a dog’s nose can detect.

Normally, we think of our dog’s nose as enabling them to decipher where we’ve been, and if that place included another dog. Or we hear of a dog that rescued a lost hiker. We notice when we are out on a walk, how they can hardly stand to let their nose leave the ground for all the smells .  From  dogs that can detect cancer , and alert owners of low blood sugar or an impending seizure,  it’s only a matter of time before we discover all the astounding abilities at the tip of our dog’s nose.
