Dogs do see color, but not in the same way as people do.

As dogs only have two different color receptors in their eyes they see the colors of the world as basically yellow, blue and gray. They see the colors green, yellow and orange as yellowish, and they see violet and blue as blue. Blue-green is seen as a gray.

Dogs are not color blind. Many people believe that dogs can only see the colors black and white; it is a fallacy. In truth, dogs see colors differently than we so. For example, they might see the color blue as yellow.

No, some pets are. Dogs are considered to be color blind because they can't see certain colors, nocturnal birds are the only type of birds that are color blind. Aquatic animals and reptiles are considered color blind because they see ultraviolet light
