Dogs have a sense of smell that is far more powerful than ours, and they can pick up on smells that we can’t. This allows them to detect drugs, bombs, or anything else you might not want them sniffing around for. So it’s safe to say that dogs are pretty good at smelling things – but what about food?

Do they have the ability to tell the difference between edibles and non-edibles? The answer to that is a resounding yes. Dogs can smell edibles and they will eat them – with disastrous results. For example, if you leave an apple pie on your countertop for too long then it’s just as good as putting out dog treats for Fido; he’ll come sniffing around until the plate or pan is empty (or should I say licked clean).

Unfortunately, this leads many pet owners to worry about how their dogs might react when they accidentally ingest some food meant only for humans in their house. But don’t fret! You’re not alone in wondering whether or not dogs have the ability to tell what’s edible from what isn’t, and experts are here to help clarify things. So do pets
