Why Dogs Like To Sniff Around

Dogs possess a very keen sense of smell and they use this important sensory organ to explore their surroundings together with their ears and tongues. This is what makes dogs a powerful tracker. However, not all dogs share the same level of olfactory ability. Some breeds of dogs are more efficient than others in picking up scents and following trails, that’s why they make better trackers than others.

Dogs with long noses like the German shepherd has a more sensitive sense of smell than short-nosed breeds like the pug. Compared to humans, dogs of any breed, have a better sense of smell.
