Why can't my dog guess which hand the treat is in?

I think she has a good sense of smell. Better than mine. She can find treats when I hide them in the house. But at least half the time she picks the wrong hand when I put the treat in one of the hands and then get her to pick. She'll usually go over and start sniffing and licking the wrong hand! It's weird! Is her sense of smell really inferior to most dogs'?

i just figured out the other day what iorek does. he sees which hand i pick up the treat with before i put them behind my back to "switch it up" :D and he always choses the hand that i picked up the treat with! he is very observant! i didn't even notice that was what he was doing until the last time we played that game. he really likes the game. i love to play any game with him so it is win win :D
that is very interesting! it makes sense. dogs have been living with people for 10's of thousands of years. thanks for sharing that :)
