Why dogs have their heads out of moving Cars

Everytime i take a dog for a ride in my car they always want too stick their heads of the car windows.

I'm thinking well maybe the dog likes to feel the wind of their face, a bit like a person riding a bike with the wind on their face on a warm day it feels nice right?

Well it seems the reason i thought is wrong.

Dogs like to put their heads out of moving cars cause of all the smells that are around, studies have shown that a dog's nose could be 1,000 to 2,000 times more acute than a humans.
They're pretty much in ecstasy when they're riding in the car and the wind is pushing all these odours in their nose," said Dave Burke, a veterinarian at Grand Traverse Veterinary Hospital. "They can discern things we're totally unaware of.

So there you go, why Dogs like to have their head out of moving cars.
