Olfactory, is the sense of smell. Humans don’t have a very strong sense of smell, while dogs’ noses are more than 10,000 times more “professional” than ours. Nowadays, trained sniffer dogs work in different fields, but even a regular pet can save your life with their strong nose.
At Dog Training Review, we adore dogs and science! Today, we have collected 10 unusual facts about the things your dog may find out by smelling. We’ve also included a bonus feature with some more unexpected info on the unique relationship between humans and dogs. We can’t wait to share it all with you!
1. Changes in the glucose blood level
Studies confirm that dogs can smell a drop in the glucose blood level. They can identify this by the change of smell in our sweat. This ability can be crucial for a dog owner with diabetes. Research shows that dogs can also analyze our behavioral changes.
Therefore, as soon as your “pet doctor” notices you smell the wrong way or that you’re unnaturally sleepy, it will start to act. Dogs can start showing signs of stress and will try to attract their owner’s attention.
