Working dogs include drug- and bomb-detecting K9s, tracking and apprehension dogs, cadaver dogs. There are dogs out there who can locate unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers and help find drowning victims hundreds of feet down.
What the Dog Knows: The Science and Wonder of Working Dogs by Cat Warren, a university professor and former journalist who works with her German shepherd, Solo, is filled with fascinating stories about these dogs and their companions.
In the book Warren interviews cognitive psychologists, historians, medical examiners, epidemiologists, and forensic anthropologists, as well as the breeders, trainers, and handlers who work with these remarkable and adaptable dogs.
Her working dog Solo is a cadaver dog. "What started as a way to harness Solo's unruly energy and enthusiasm soon became a calling that introduced Warren to the hidden and fascinating universe of working dogs, their handlers, and their trainers."
