Did you know your dog can smell in stereo? Well, the dog nose knows a lots of things that go beyond just a simple scent.

A dog’s nose is an extraordinary thing.  They often seem to be quite enthused over things they sniff out that we are probably just as glad we can’t smell.  Really glad we can’t smell. Or identify with a single whiff.

But what is the process that allows dogs to “see,” things we simply aren’t built for from an olfactory aspect? This TEDEd video is a great way to get some understanding into how those snouts on our canine pals work.
