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.
