Dog Senses of Sight, touch & taste. dog eyesight
Adog' sight is the most import of its senses. It's not as developed as in humans, since the dog can barely differentiate different colors (which it confuses in a gamma of sepia hues), or their depth, although their field of vision is much broader than ours and has great reflex toward movement; which is where its skill is when sighting its prey when hunting. The dog's field of vision is very wide: from 200 to 270 degrees (depending on the size of its snout and the skull's shape) compared to man's 160 degrees. Their eyes are very similar to a human's, but the ocular globes have less movement. Ahuman's sight is binocular and forward, while a dog's are laterally. Humans have much better sight than, especially when it comes to small objects, yet , because of the location of their eyes can detect a movement behind them. Dogs are farsighted and detect moving objects much more than immobile ones. On the other hand, they have excellent night vision since they have a special membrane that allows them to receive light.
Dog Sense of touch
Their sense of touch follows their sight in importance. Although it's not very developed, there are some breeds that are more sensitive than others due to the shorter length of their coat. Besides, use their whiskers as detecting radar helping them identify the objects that are in their way. Their touch is limited to the sensitivity of their not very developed cutaneous cells and hair, which roots and the hair cavities are directly associated to nerve extensions. The most delicate areas are the lips and tongue, which is why it uses its mouth to get information on the objects if finds. The sense of touch is important to the dog since it helps it socialize with its pack-family and other . Which is why its so important to pet our dog.
Dog Sense of taste
It's the least developed sense. The amount and variety of taste buds that cover the tongue are far less than humans, which is why it barely savors the mild tastes. Dogs only recognize pleasant, neutral or unpleasant tastes. attraction is utterly dependent on the smell. This is why dog manufactures focus so much on making them with a strong smell. Dogs don't know how to taste ; we know they like the more because they wolf it down faster than something they don't.
