A dog's nose may be wetter than yours, but don't count yourself out when it comes to tracking a scent just as well as your canine companion. A new mega-study in the journal Science refutes the longtime belief that dogs' noses are vastly superior to our own, reporting that people's olfactory skills rank right up there with other mammals, including rodents and, yes, dogs.

So they aren't better, they're just better at it?

Ok.

Sorry, highly skeptical of this study.

So they can smell things from a greater distance, but if you put it up under our noses we can tell what it is just as good as they can?


Whooptie do. I'm guessing the TSA, Search and Rescue teams, and Bomb squads will stick to Fido and Shep.

Baloney.
And its meta study, not mega.

You can pull any interpretation you want from a study, its subjective.

But you cannot change the fact that dogs have incredible sense of smell.
Really sick of this fake science, they come out with outlandish claims then beg for more funding.
They're just whores who are too lazy and stupid to do real science.
