Puppies, like adult dogs, have limited color perception compared to humans.
Dogs are often described as being dichromatic, meaning they primarily see the world in shades of blue and yellow.
Here are some key points regarding a puppy's color perception:
2.Blue and Yellow Dominance: Puppies can see blue and yellow colors more clearly than other hues. They might perceive red and green as shades of gray.
3.Poor Red-Green Discrimination: Puppies have difficulty distinguishing between red and green objects. For example, a red ball on green grass may not stand out as much to a puppy as it would to a human.
4.Stronger Low-Light Vision: While puppies have limited color vision, they are adapted for better low-light vision. This is an advantage inherited from their ancestors, the wolves, who were crepuscular hunters.
Understanding a puppy's limited color perception can be important when choosing toys or designing their environment.
Brightly colored toys that contrast with the surroundings may be more appealing to them.
However, scent, movement, and other factors play a significant role in a puppy's perception and interaction with their environment.
