Dog Trivia Charles Evans Cron We did an experiment many years ago in my college days to test a dogs sense of smell. First we placed a piece of meat in a lab dish and placed it in a circle of 5 identical lab dishes around the class . Enter the every day garden variety of canine and of course the dog went directly to the meat (we did this for a couple of weeks to condition the dog). The fourth week we made another circle using the same dishes but all washed (no meat). We marked the dish that held the meat the weeks before and placed it in another position. Guess what dish the dog went to. Yep, and continued to pick out that dish every week (6 or 7) until the end of the term.
