Nosework - Scent Discrimination

by Turid Rugaas and Anne Lill Kvam

"The dogs that I trained in Angola were capable of finding anti-man mines that had been buried 20 centimetres underground 10 years earlier.  A South African colleague told me about a dog who had signalled the presence of a mine at a distance of 30 metres.  Why, then are we surprised about rambo's excitement when the female who lives 4 kilometres away is in heat?" Anne Lill Kvam

About the Authors

Anne Lill Kvam's passion for working with dogs began in 1986 when she trained her dog for search and rescue. A student of Turid Rugaas's school, Anne worked in Angola for the Norwegian People's Aid organization, focusing on clearing anti-man mines (landmines). She was responsible for the instruction of the dogs and their handlers, and was the supervisor in the operations of mine removal as well. Since returning to Norway, Anne has managed her dog-training school, Troll Hudeskole, and has become a highly requested speaker, particularly as an expert in scent discrimination.

Turid Rugaas has been working with dogs for more than forty years. At the end of the 1980s, along with her colleague Stale Odegard, she studied, described, and systematized "Calming Signals" in dogs. Her book and videos on the subject in their numerous translations have been, and are, among the bestsellers in the field where they are recognized points of reference all over the world.
