Cat Warren - 'What the Dog Knows' Young Readers Edition

Solo has a fine nose and knows how to use it. What good working dogs can do may seem magical or mysterious, but What the Dog Knows shows the science, the rigorous training, and the skilled handling that underlie these amazing abilities. It tells the stories of cadaver dogs, drug and bomb detecting K9s, tracking and apprehension dogs—even dogs who can locate unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers and help find drowning victims more than two hundred feet below the surface of a lake. Working dogs sometimes seem magical, as they distinguish scent, cover territory, and accomplish tasks that no machine is yet capable of.

"What the Dog Knows offers a fascinating, fun glimpse into the world of dogs. If you've ever loved a dog, you will adore this book." – Robert Crais
