Canine Vision

By Gerard @presurfer
I didn't know this. Dogs are red-green color blind. They see a brighter and less detailed world when compared to humans. Peripheral vision is better than humans (dogs see more of the world), but distance is not judged quite as well.
Dogs excel at night vision and the detection of moving objects. The picture below is a rough guesstimate of what a dog and human might see when viewing a color band.
