The Pet Doctor - Episode 163 The Nose Knows - Detection Dogs

April 19, 201334 min
You've seen them on the news, at the airport and major sporting events... detection dogs. They can sniff out explosives and contraband, but how do they do what they do? A dog's nose is so exquisitely sensitive that it's said that where you and I might detect the scent of stew wafting through the air, a dog could pick out the individual ingredients as well as the person who made the meal from the same aroma stream. Though a dog may have the physical ability for the task, it takes special training to turn them into potentially lifesaving canines. Dr. Cynthia Otto is the director of Penn Vet Working Dog Center, in Philadelphia, PA. She's going to give us a glimpse into the care, training and ongoing research that goes into these spectacular canines, and what you can do to get involved. Questions or comments?
