Some two years since COVID began spreading around the globe and trainers and researchers are finally seeing some real life applications for dogs trained to detect the virus.
Most of the dogs that succeed as a police K9 have been purposefully bred to become the best dogs they can be, but sometimes out of a shelter or rescue, comes a diamond in the “ruff.”
In this episode, learn about a couple k9 recruits that fit that description, plus: responsibilities of a K9 handler, the selection process for choosing the right dogs, and the rescue that helped bring a couple standouts into the law enforcement fold.
A dog, abandoned as a tiny pup, overcomes the odds to help with some amazing work protecting one of the most endangered mammals on the planet.
In this episode, how a ride along with a police K9 unit helped an artist find her inspiration for some of her most poignant works. And, a quick sniff at a nose work trial in Washington.
