Your dog has between 125 million and 300 million scent glands, compared to just 5 million in humans, depending on the breed. And, despite the fact that the canine brain is much smaller than the human brain in terms of size, the portion of your dog’s brain that regulates smell is 40 times larger than yours. The brain of an adult is about 1/40th of their body weight, while the brain of a dog is about 1/125th.
