Harnessing the Power of Your Dog’s Nose: An Introduction to K9 Nose Work

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 23:11:34 +0000

A dog’s nose is an amazing thing to behold. Dogs have the ability to: wiggle each nostril independently, breathe in through the holes in the front of the nose and exhale through the side slits, and discern individual odors making up what we could call a “scent.” Humans have about 5 million cells devoted to smelling; dogs have up to 220 million. Not only that, but dogs have four times the brain power devoted to processing scents! We smell “vegetable soup,” but a dog smells each individual ingredient. Dogs’ noses are so powerful they can detect one tablespoon of sugar in the amount of water it would take to fill two Olympic-sized swimming pools!

Click and Play: Using Play as a Reinforcer

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 05:00:00 +0000

Dogs smile. Just like people, dogs pull the corners of their mouths up high toward their eyes, partially open their mouths, and smile. In 1872, Darwin wrote of the universality of facial expressions in The Expressions of Emotions in Man and Animals. Roughly 130 years later, Dr. Patricia McConnell authored For the Love of a Dog in which she compared human and dog facial expressions using the methods developed by Paul Ekman, the world's leading scientist on the topic. The truth is out: dogs smile, and, of course, experience emotions.

Do You Know a Ball-Crazy Dog? Try Flyball!

Mon, 01 Oct 2012 17:12:56 +0000

Controlled chaos! Drag racing for dogs! These are some of the phrases used to describe flyball—a relay race for dogs and their humans.

Flyball began in the 1980s as an offshoot of scent hurdling (a sport that was itself started in the 1960s). In scent hurdling, a team of four dogs and handlers races against other teams. The object is to see which team can be the first to send all their dogs over four jumps to retrieve scented dumbbells and return with the correct dumbbell.
