Detector Dogs: Hot on the Scent

Detector Dogs: Hot on the Scent

by Elizabeth Ring

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Assistance Dogs outlines how guide, hearing, and service dogs assist handicapped people while serving as their companions. Detector Dogs briefly describes the ways in which canines use their sense of smell to help enforcement personnel search for narcotics, explosives, accelerants, bodies, and for contraband plants and animals. The breeds used, their traits, and how they are trained are explained in each book. Personal stories and ancedotes of people and dogs working together bring the ideas presented to life. Ring's conversational writing style is appealing, as are the full-color photographs.-Carol Kolb Phillips, The Library, East Brunswick, NJ
