5 Most surprising things a Dog can smell


While the human brain is dominated by a large visual cortex, the dog brain is dominated by an olfactory cortex. The olfactory bulb in dogs is roughly forty times bigger than the olfactory bulb in humans, relative to total brain size, with 125 to 220 million smell-sensitive receptors. The bloodhound exceeds this standard with nearly 300 million receptors.

Thing #02:

Underwater Remains

Yes, that does mean human remains. Most of us are aware that dogs are trained for both live find search and rescue and cadaver finds. We’d always rather have them save someone, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. When things get ugly, sometimes bodies are underwater. But our dogs have the amazing ability to find them no matter where they may be. SAR groups will take their trained dogs on boats over bodies of water, and believe it or not, the dogs will indicate above water where the remains are hiding below.
