Emotions & Sense of Smell — the unseen connection❕
🔻
Did you know❓
🔸 A dog’s nostrils operate independently of one another, allowing them to not only detect interesting scents, but to glean a sense of its location as well.
Their nose acts like a “stereo olfaction”
🔸 Dogs inhale through the nostril holes but exhale through the side. This allows the odors they've inhaled to stay in there a longer.
🔸A dog’s nose controls a huge part of the brain
🧠
The part of a dog’s brain dedicated to scent is 40x greater than ours.
🔸
A dog’s brain is literally built around the information h/she gets from scent.
🔸
AND … smell is closely linked to emotions!
🔸
This fact provides more evidence that a dog’s emotional experience just might be even greater than we could ever imagine. (Duh)
🔸
When a dog inhales, scent molecules stimulate chemical messengers that bypass other areas of the brain and go straight to the amygdala, the brain’s emotional center. The amygdala passes emotional judgments to other structures that collate memories and these are passed onto the cortex. Emotionally appropriate hormones are then released into the body, which also affect mood.
🔸
Stimulating a dog’s sense of smell with food, for example, not only motivates a dog to learn, but is a valuable tool in changing the way the brain works.

Baywatch dog 🌊

Sandy paws from digging and a sandy nose from sniffing! Having fun on her 1st trip to the beach 🏖 and I’m settling down with my book - the sun came out & we made it to the beach @heidi_swain 📖💗

A healthy wet nose can be a mixed blessing in the sand 😏🐕

Adventures at the beach are always a good idea! 😁🏖️❤️
Since the whole 'Ardennes' trip fell through,, Boss took me to the beach instead 😄👍 I still prefer the woods 🌳 but boy is it fun to roll around in the sand 😁 Get ready for a LOT of beach pictures the next days 😋📸

A little fed up as dogs aren’t allowed on this beach. Pegs decided to sit as close as possible!
