From the Publisher: The Most Complete Look Ever at the Science of Scent and the Scenting Dog In this unusual and unique study of the tracking dog, Milo Pearsall, for many years America’s foremost obedience trainer, teamed up with Hugo Verbruggen, M.D., a medical doctor and researcher with an enthusiasm for the sport, to look at how dogs follow a track. What they discovered is important information for anyone interested in scent work. First, the authors examine how dogs smell and why dogs are able to follow a track. Perhaps their most important discovery was how wind, humidity, terrain and other environmental factors influence the dog’s ability to scent and must be considered when handling a tracking dog. They discuss all types of scent work and explain, step-by-step, how to train your dog.
