A dog's nose has got to be one of the most remarkable things in nature.
I always knew they could track missing persons, http://www.americansearchdogs.org/
Find survivors of earthquakes and other disasters, http://www.searchdogfoundation.org/
Find drugs at our airports and borders, http://www.narcdogs.com/
Find explosives http://www.atf.gov/explosives/programs/explosives-detection-canines/
Predict seizures. http://www.epilepsy.com/articles/ar_1084289240
I have lately learned that they can detect most types of cancer by sniffing
And urine samples,
And breath samples http://www.dogsdetectcancer.org/
And moles http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(01)06065-2/fulltext
Today I found a San Diego company that uses them to inspect property for bedbugs.
I guess I'm behind the times. Lots of other companies are using them, too.
I knew that bedbugs had made a huge comeback in the last few years. It's good to know that our dogs are on the job ridding us of them.
