"A fascinating and encyclopedic look at dogs' amazing scent abilities."-- "The Bark"
"As a beaver researcher, Frank Rosell had the inspired idea to use the dog nose to distinguish castoreum, the odorant beavers leave on their territories, and anal gland secretions. In this encyclopedic compendium, Rosell details all the things he then learned that the fantastic dog nose can find, from the spruce bark beetle to golf balls to cows in estrus. Any dog owner who has been, as I have, following their dog's nose, will be fascinated at this long list of what the nose of the companion by our sides can do."-- "Alexandra Horowitz, author of Being a Dog"
"In this fascinating study, behavioural ecologist Frank Rosell guides us through compelling research on olfaction-related canine ethology, physiology and neuroscience."-- "Nature"
"People seeking to employ sniffer dogs in their work will find this detailed science report extremely useful."-- "Booklist"
"This is a wonderful book, well researched and up to date. An exhaustive work that will help everyone who uses dogs for their scenting capabilities, it will also appeal to pet owners who want to learn more about their dogs' noses and what they can detect."-- "Susan Bulanda, certified animal behavior consultant and SAR dog expert"
