From the almost other-worldly capabilities of the dog's amazing sense of smell to their ears' powerful ability to hear as well as their laser-like sense of sight;  to truly understand how dogs perceive the world it's crucial to first understand the overall canine sensory experience.

Senses are closely linked to emotions, and emotions are the driving force behind most behavior, so understanding a dog’s sensory capabilities is a fundamental key to appreciating what the dog’s life experience in our domestic world is really like.

Using a dog’s senses to help him think and work through behavioral issues is called sensory education, and positive trainers harness this powerful tool to help encourage dogs to learn effectively and gain confidence .
