Are Dogs color-blind?Featured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

Our hypothesis that  dogs are able to differentiate between blue and yellow, is proven to be true.

The inability of dogs to differentiate between most colors, is compensated by its keen vision, particularly, night vision. This makes them very useful as guard dogs.

Also consider

What would happen if the science fair project were to be repeated using combinations of colored boxes?

The science project experiment can be repeated using different breeds of dogs.
