Dogs Only See in Black and White
It’s difficult to feel sympathetic towards our furry friends because we were told they could not see a number of colors. Even though it is impossible for us to completely comprehend how the world looks through the eyes of other species, by examining their eyes or sight organs, we gain a better understanding of how dogs view the world around them.
Dogs have significantly fewer cones (the cell responsible for color perception) than humans, so they can see a very limited range of colors. Their night vision is impeccable, but their cone cells only allow them to see shades of yellow, gray, blue, and brown. They probably don’t even see red and orange hues the same way we do. In conclusion, dogs do see colors other than black and white – just not as many or as vivid as we do.
