Veteran's Day Special: Update on the PennVet Working Dog Center

In this podcast we hear from Dr. Cindy Otto, Associate Professor of Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Otto is the director and founder of the PennVet Working Dog Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her current research interests are focused on the health, genetics, and behavioral aspects of performance in detection dogs. Funded by CHF, Dr. Otto began following the health and behavior of search dogs following the 9/11 response, and opened the PennVet working dog center on Sept 11, 2012. In this podcast, Dr. Otto provides an update on the center, why there is a critical need for such a center in the United States, and what a day in the life of a working dog is like at the center. Dr. Otto also provides a brief recap of the very successful PennVet working dog conference held in April of this year, as well as information on the field of behavioral training as it applies to both working and pet dogs.
