Specific Odor Scenting dogs are training to track, air scent, or alert to specific scents. Those scents can range from drug, explosive, arson, and narcotics to almost any scent out there. People have taken advantage of dogs’ incredibly keen sense of smell over time for such uses as hunting, tracking lost and fugitive humans, and more recently, the detection of bombs, narcotics, and other contraband. It’s well known that a dog’s nose is many times sharper than our own – estimates range from 10,000 to 100,000 times superior to ours, with a much larger number and variety of scent receptors in their noses, more neurons linking the nose to the brain, and a greater proportion of their brains devoted to smell. A dog trained to scent discriminate, works until matching the specific target scent has been located. The dog is trained to ignore all other scent during that search.
