This lecture is aimed for professionals who work with special detection dogs, tracking and trailing dogs.
During the weekend we will dig deep into the world of odors and learn what science has to offer us about them. What are odors? How they react in different environments? What new does science know about them?
If you have any questions about scents, Adee is the right person to answer to you! You can also send questions beforehand by email.
Adee Schoon began her work with police human scent dogs in the Netherlands in 1991 and obtained her Ph.D. in 1997. Since then, her work has included research projects in explosive, drug, human remains, and corrosion detection, puppy selection, and training programs, and teaching about odors, scent perception, learning, and training.
