042: Nathan Hall: Canine Olfaction

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • Nathan’s background and research interests in canine olfaction.
  • The cocktail method of training detection.
  • Psuedo scents and the research behind them.
  • The ever-growing list of questions that comes up as you continue research and the further need for research in canine olfaction.
  • Variations in your training samples. 

Key Takeaways:

  • We don’t know enough about the threshold of olfaction
  • Train the dog to what you want them to find.
  • Look at actual data. It is easy to see a success story, but the data will tell what’s actually happening.
  • If you don’t set yourself to be wrong, then you’re not doing science.
