We all know that zoology is the study of animals, but did you know that the study of domestic dogs is called cynology?
The education team at Dogs Trust are very interested in cynology, because dogs are such wonderfully complicated animals. In fact, in celebration of Science Week, we came up with a doggy pack that you can download at the bottom of this page. This pack has a week’s worth of workshops and activities in it, all designed to learn more about dogs senses. For example did you know that dogs’ have 220 million scent receptors in their nose, compared to our measly 5 million? And did you know that a dog can hear things 4 times farther away than we can? We are almost nose blind and deaf when compared to them.
Our workshops will encourage your class to undertake experiments to fully grasp how powerful a dogs’ senses truly are in a fun and comprehensive way.
Your local Education and Community Officer would love to see all you and your classes hard work so please send us on some photos of your project and dog toy designs—There are prizes for the best submissions, and we'll feature your work on our blog! We can't wait to see your work.
Dogs Trust hope you enjoy our free resources. Happy Science week.
