Canines have also been used to locate endangered species of plants and animals using their nose. They have also been used to detect bedbugs and diseases. The canine nose is 10,000 to 100,000 times stronger than a human’s nose. A dog can detect a drop of sugar in an Olympic sized swimming pool.

The canine nose is extraordinary and they love to use it.
