Is It True That Dogs Only See in Black & White?

ANSWER: It is a common myth that dogs only see in black and white. The fact is, Dogs CAN see in color. However, their color pallet is a bit more limited than that of a human.

Dogs see in color but they just can't see color as vividly as humans do. The best way to describe how they view colors is: their perception of color is the same as ours is during the twilight hours of evening.

But before you start feeling bad for them, remember, dogs do have one distinctive advantage on humans. They can see much better in the dark than we do!
