Stress Discrimination in Dogs by Scent

The Good Dog Pod

Nov 30 2022 • 35 mins

We are joined by Clara Wilson, a final year PhD researcher at Queen's University Belfast who studies odor cues associated with human physiological states and health conditions using applied canine olfaction.

Learn about how dogs can use their sense of smell to detect stress (among other things) in humans! Clara talks about how to measure a dog's ability to detect stress, and the importance of training dogs to accomplish this task.
