The eyes of a dog are meant to see prey.  They usually see better at dusk, and can spot moving things better than things that are standing still.

Dogs are not color blind – they can see blues and greens.  They have a wider angle of vision than we do.  They can see between 200-270 degrees of range where we can only see 160 degrees.

The dogs with the best vision are called sight hounds such as greyhounds and salukis.
