Sniffing is a part of the dog’s behavior and we all know it. There is of course a reason why the nose is the most powerful sense of the dog.

Perhaps you didn’t know that dogs can even distinguish some smells. For instance, the dog can easily recognize and divide the smell of the cheese, the meat and the ketchup on a cheese burger.

There is no surprise that dogs are trained for tracking, because they can sniff out drugs, bombs and even criminals. The recent studies are informing that they can even find the tiniest insects in your home, including the bedbugs.

The vets often explain the sniffing as a part of the behavior. While humans understand each other with talking, dogs simply sniff and this is their way to understand the world and the closest surroundings.
