A better understanding of the power and limits of the dog’s nose is critical for optimal training and performance of detection dogs. Expecting dogs to search for finds that are too easy or finds that are impossible, is not fun and can be frustrating for all involved. This talk by Dr. Nathanial Hall, PhD will leverage the latest science on the dog’s sense of smell to help trainers better understand what smell is and how the dog’s sense of smell works. At the end of the talk, participants will be able to: -Define an odor as a physical stimulus -Identify how dogs can be tested to probe their sensitivity and describe some of the complexities associated with it -Describe how experience and learning influence olfactory perception A question and answer session will follow. Moderated by Dr. Monique Udell. Join us for the live webinar on April 25th, 2018 Eastern Time, or the recorded version after this date.
