Posted November 20, 2018 08:59:25A cat can’t see you, so the scent of a pet can be powerful in a relationship.
But if a cat is a little bit sniffy, they can be a little more sensitive than you might think.
That’s the finding of a new study that finds that dogs and cats can smell each other through skin.
The research was published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science.
It’s been about 30 years since researchers at the University of Minnesota published their groundbreaking study, which showed that a dog’s nose could pick up a cat’s scent even when the animal was in a different room.
The dogs’ nose was just one piece of evidence of the potential scent sensitivity of cats.
Other clues include the dogs’ size and shape.
And their size and posture.
That’s where the scent comes in.
The study involved two pairs of dogs.
One pair of dogs was a standard-issue “chihuahua” and the other was a “pit bull.”
The dogs were separated into two groups.
The standard-sized dogs were the one in the standard-chihuahuas and the pit bulls were the pit bull in the pit.
The researchers had each dog sit in a small cage in which a scent-sensitive collar was attached.
Each dog had to be trained to sniff the collar and the collar would detect whether the dog was a regular chihuahuan or a pit bull.
Once trained, the dogs were allowed to go to their own owners for a day each and could interact with their owners.
The study showed that the dogs had a stronger sense of smell when the dogs shared the same room.
In other words, the smell of the cage was just as important as the smell-sensing collar.
The researchers were able to demonstrate that the scent-sensitivity of the dogs increased with the size of the cages.
This suggests that if the cages were smaller, the scent detection was stronger, the researchers say.
“This study shows that a lot of the time, people don’t even think about what the scent can do to a relationship,” said co-author Lisa A. Pankow, a research associate at the Center for Advanced Studies in Animal Behavior.
“They think it’s the cats that are smelling the food, but they aren’t thinking about the smell that’s going on between a dog and a cat.”
In other words: Dogs can be more sensitive to a scent than you think.
And even if you have a dog who’s never been trained to smell, you can still recognize him if he’s sniffing a crate or a bed.
