A dog's sense of smell is substantially better than a human's.

In fact, dogs can differentiate anywhere from 30,000 to 100,000 different scents and have 60 times more scent receptors than humans.

A pregnant woman's hormonal changes may cause subtle changes to her scent that are detectable only to her canine companion.
