How Do Dogs See The World?


How Do Dogs See The World? | Dogalize

Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not see the world in black and white.

They do, however, see the world quite differently to humans. Dogs retinas have fewer cones but more rods compared to humans. Color vision depends on the cone. The fact that they have a lower presence of cones means they do see colour, but in a differen way.

Dog vision is dichromatic, so they primarily see blues and yellows, while humans see trichromatically, with visible variations of red, blue and yellow.

The higher presence of rods in dogs retinas, instead, means they detect movement and light better. Dogs, indeed, are much better than humans in low light situations and in identifying and catching moving obgects.
