The nose is really something. Is Beagle consider as a bloodhound?
bloodhounds and beagles are both part of the 'scent hound' group of hounds
Like Monica, I had no idea a bloodhound could track a person's scent if they were inside a car!! I found that totally amazing! Besides that, think of all the other scents in town, ie: hundreds of other vehicles, people, animals, garbage. My son also was able to follow the dogs during a different training exercise. He said that along the way, kids would run out to try and pet the dogs; they were always friendly and allowed the kids to touch them, but enjoyed getting right back to work.
I googled 'bloodhound' and read up on these interesting dogs. The scent hound nose is truly a miracle. (I wonder if Cheerio has ever used a bloodhound in her work?)
Sandy, I looked up the books you mentioned, and have added them to my list of 'must reads' on my next vacation. Thanks
