6/4/14 – SPARCS presenter Simon Gadbois, PhD – Scent detection training and olfaction!

SPARCS Speaker interview – Dr. Simon Gadbois

Visit www.caninescience.info to learn more about SPARCS Conference 2014 and how you can listen either in person or via their live streaming.

One of my favorite topics to discuss is dogs’ incredible sense of smell!  I can’t wait to hear what Dr. Gadbois has to say on this matter, given his experience specifically researching this topic, and how it can be applied.  Whether it be hypoglycemia, or invasive insects, Dr. Gadbois is doing some great work around this topic!

Find him at http://www.gadbois.org/simon/

And watch this great clip of some his program dogs being trained to detect scent.  Notice the positive, encouraging tone!
