A dog's strongest sense is its sense of smell. A dog's smell is 1,000 to 10 million times more sensitive than a human's, depending on breed. A human has about 5 million scent glands, whereas a dog has approximately 125 million to 300 million, depending on breed.

A domestic cat can smell with roughly 200 million smell-sensitive receptors (humans have 5 million). A domestic dog can range from as low, in comparison, as 125 million to as high as 220 million depending on the breed. Scenthounds receptors are obviously on the higher end of the scale. On an average the cat can smell better than the dog but the specific winner goes to the Dog breed of Bloodhound, which can have as many as 300 million. This makes them a clear winner in breed but not in genus.

A Barvarian mountain hound is a Bavarian breed of scenthound - a variety of dog which tracks prey using its sense of smell.

It will vary from dog to dog or by breed but generally dogs see about as well as humans do. Smell is their "super" sense and the one they rely on more than anything to know what is happening with their surroundings.

Their sense of smell is much more advanced than a human's sense of smell.
