The Latest in Scientific Field Equipment: Your Dog’s Nose!

NPR’s Morning Edition recently did this piece on how dogs are playing an increasingly important role in wildlife conservation and research.“So you have an Olympic-size swimming pool full of water and then you have an identical pool full of water to which you add a teaspoon of sugar,” Horowitz says. “They can detect the difference. That smells different to them.” 

“Just watching a dog respond to all the things out there you get just the tiniest, tiniest sense of how they experience the world,” Parker says.

 … Which is, of course, why many of us are so addicted to K9 Nose Work.  That window into their world is so much fun!
