Dog noses are 10,000x more powerful than a human’s. But they have 80% fewer taste buds. A dog’s brain craves scent.

  • Scent processing through a dog’s nasal passage is detected by 220 million scent receptors.
  • In a dog’s brain the olfactory bulb is three times the size of a human’s.
  • Dog noses are stereoscopic, with one nostril identifying a smell, and one locating it.

*Based on a study of average engagement conducted at the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, dogs stay engaged 7X longer vs. unscented toys.
