How far away can a male dog smell a female in heat

This answer was rated:

My 11 year old unneutered male dog is crying at night and wants out. Then he trys to run away. Is there a female close and how close. Also could it be female coyotes?
Hi Ginger,

I know they can smell a female dog in heat as far away as a mile. So it is very possible that he is detecting a female dog or coyote in heat.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
