How good is a Labrador Retrievers sense of smell

Labrador Retrievers have an extremely refined sense of smell, even in comparison to other dog breeds. When the Labrador Retriever breed was first developed, the desirable characteristics that were selected in dogs for breeding were retrieval and hunting abilities. These abilities are enhanced by the Labrador Retriever’s excellent sense of smell, as well as the instinctual desire of a Labrador Retriever to track and follow specific scents.
