So, let us talk about how dogs' sense of smell can impact their taste. Dogs have far less taste buds than humans but, as stated before, many more olfactory receptors. What does this mean? It means that dogs “taste” with their nose. The smellier the food, the more enticing it will be for your dog. Normally, if we see something and think, “eww gross,” our dogs will love it. A dog's sense of smell is correlated to their age, breed, and sex. Each dog is different and can have different preferences as to what they do and do not like. At Michael’s Barkery we have a variety of different treats and chews for your pup, so come by the store and pick up something nice and smelly!
