Animal behavior case of the month



Animal behavior case of the month



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 203(3): 377-378



A case report is given of 2.5-year-old German Shepherd Dog which was used to search aeroplanes for explosives. A thorough search of the plane took about 2.5 hours and the dog was then allowed to find a dummy bomb and was rewarded with praise and a game with a toy. Exercise was given as a walk on a golf course where the dog spent its time retrieving lost balls.
