DIY Spiral Dog Toy in High Visibility Colours for Dog Vision

Well hello there, beautiful blue and yellow tug toy!  As detailed in our post about the differences between how dogs see things vs. how humans see things, blue and yellow are the two "true" colours for a typical dog's vision so we combine those with high contrast white and black in this special spiral tug.  This combination is my new version of doggy "high vis" for maximum colour and contrast, as shown in the side-by-side simulation below:

Dog Vision vs. Human Vision: A Life Changing Owner Learning

👓 Don't adjust your screens...this is the same post cataract surgery walkies photo of Oli as shared in our cataract surgery post, adjusted to represent a typical healthy dog's view of the same scene.   When trying to better understand the differences between human vision and our dog's vision so that we could better assist our senior dog Oli with his post-cataract surgery visual deficits, I had a (long overdue) lightbulb moment that changed everything for us in how we approach our dogs' view of the world. I knew that dogs didn't perceive colour the same way as we did, but never understood the potential implications of dog vision vs. human vision and how I could use that knowledge to better support our dogs with visual cues as well as boost their general fun.

Senior Dog Love - Oli Update - Cataract Surgery Experience

Close up of Dalmatian dog's eyes after cataract surgery

April is here, and this month is all about our beautiful old boy Oli who has his 12th barkday coming in a few weeks!  We are also passing the milestone of six months post cataract surgery and with any further visual improvements from here likely to be slow and minimal at best, it's time we shared a summary of our cataract surgery experience for those of you who have taken Oli into your hearts over the past few years of our blogging or those who may be facing similar uncertainties with their own beloved pets.

Senior Dog Love - Oli Update - Vision, Mobility, and More

Before we jump back to fresh fun posts after our blog break and Humphrey's belated birthday bash, I'd be remiss if I didn't update our blog friends on our beautiful old boy Oli's ongoing health and senior dog struggles. Since it's too substantial a share for our usual Facebook updates, I've decided to share a quick update here on the blog.
