A dog's nose contains hundreds of millions of scent receptors, while the human nose has to make do with only 5 million. Dogs also have two passages in the nose, one for breathing and one for the senses of smell. Moreover, the part of the brain that deals with smells is more than 40 times larger in dogs than in humans!
