When creating DOGTV, television for dogs, we had to take into account the unique sense perception of canines. We do know now, that dogs react beautifully to what’s on TV, and especially DOGTV – which was designed especially for them. This is exciting, because of the fact that vision is not that important for dogs. Smell and hearing are much more important and thus developed in dogs.
Alexandra Horowitz, the author of the wonderful book “Inside of a dog” (which includes an interesting chapter on dogs and TV) released this wonderful video about dogs amazing sense of smell.
If you want to learn more about dogs’ noses, I invite you to read Nova’s “Dog’s Dazzling sense of smell“.
Have a good week,
