We all know dogs have an incredible sense of smell, but that’s just the beginning. The dog olfactory system has received considerable scrutiny in recent years, both the extent of dogs’ detection skills as well as the role of olfaction in everyday interactions. Scent-based sports and games are on the rise, and behavior-modification protocols now incorporate smell-based recommendations.
Join Julie Hecht, MSc, for a tour of recent research into canine nose studies – dog olfaction, including its role in detection work and everyday intra- and inter-specific interactions. New brain and behavior research help complete the picture of the dog’s olfactory system. There is much more to a dog’s wet nose than meets the eye.
