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 bloodhound exceeds this standard with nearly 300 million receptors.

Bed Bugs

Have you ever seen those nasty things!? Hopefully not…but if you do, you can call on some dogs! Exterminator companies have started training dogs to detect bed bugs so they can start getting those little creatures out of your house for good! This is especially important when you’re looking to buy or rent a new home – dogs will let you know beforehand whether there are some extra tenants that need to be removed.
