What the dog knows Scent, science, and the amazing ways dogs perceive the world

Cat Warren

Large print - 2019

"In this young readers edition of the New York Times bestseller, Cat Warren and her canine companion, Solo, teach readers that the nose knows no bounds when it comes to working together, being persistent, and helping others. But he's only one of many thousands of scent-detection dogs all over the United States. That's a group that includes cadaver dogs, tracking, trailing, and apprehension dogs, and dogs that can locate unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers. What the Dog Knows sho...ws the science, the rigorous training, and the skilled handling that underlie these amazing abilities."--Back cover.
