We moved our Blog!

Mar 27, 2020

We moved! Welcome to the new home of the Scent Detection Blog by Hunter's Heart. We're moving from wordpress and are gradually transitioning all of our content to this new URL. 

Thanks to all of our students, readers, friends and teachers for your support. We've been sniffing since 1999, and together we've learned about what works and what doesn't. This blog aims to share those learnings, and update them as knowledge about canine olfaction continues to grow.

Sometimes it's a struggle to adapt and keep pace. Thank you for your patience. When I graduated from the University of Toronto in 1995, I was working on a mainframe, and carrying floppy discs. I remember reading (paper) books to learn about the developing world wide web.  Online searches were long, tedious, hard work with frequently disappointing results. The scanned photo in this post is from my (paper) scrapbook from when we had only 1 dog, and 5 ferrets, each with their own lessons to teach. We've come a long way since then. 

Throughout all, my canine partners have kept life real. No matter what I'm working on, they never lose their zest for a new search, a new walk, or a fun new game. 

I hope you find this new resource useful in meeting your needs in finding reliable, clear, entertaining coverage of canine scent detection. As always, questions and suggestions are welcome. 

Keep on sniffing, and let us know how you make out in the comments.
