  • Detection Dog and Target Odors

    Ever wonder how far away a detection dog can pick up on the target odor?

    Here is an actual GPS track that a WEST detection dog walked on a 100 m x 100 m plot at the base of a wind turbine. (They started at the green play symbol and walked toward the red stop symbol.)

    You can see on the first pass that the WEST detection dog detected the odor of a bat carcass almost 50 m away. Good dog! Ask us how WEST dogs can help you with your PCM surveys.
