'What The Dog Knows' tells the stories of cadaver dogs, drug- and bomb-detecting K9s, tracking and apprehension dogs - even dogs who can locate unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers and help find drowning victims more than sixty metres below the surface of a lake.
Working dogs sometimes seem magical, yet Cat Warren reveals the science, the intense training, and the skilled handling that lie behind those abilities.
She discovers story after story that prove the capabilities - as well as the very real limits - of working dogs and their human partners, and explains why our partnership with dogs is woven into the very fabric of society.
