Our question this week was:

My granddaughter wants to know if dogs are color blind. Could you let me know. Thanks

Answer

Dogs do see in color, but their perception of color is not the same as it is for people. They cannot distinguish between red, orange, yellow or green. They can see various shades of blue and can differentiate between closely related shades of gray that are not distinguishable to people.



Our question this week came from Beverly, in Tucson, Arizona.
