Canine Olfaction, The Heart of Dr. Hall's Research

Apr 5, 2017

What does the dog's nose know? What do we know about scent detection dogs? Although millions of pet dogs live in our homes, we have very little understanding of perhaps one of the most important components of their world, smell.

Unfortunately, the science of canine olfactory perception and scent detection dogs is not yet very clear. Despite detection dog training being shaped over hundreds of years, the scientific endeavor to understand the capabilities and capacity of the dog's nose and sense of smell is still nascent. The primary goal of Dr. Hall's Lab is to do just that.

On behalf of everyone here at KTTZ-TV​, we wanted to say thank you for our recent success in our March pledge. It is because of your support and financial contributions to our stations that we can continue to educate, innovate and inspire by providing amazing events and programming to viewers like you! #MyKTTZ
