  • In this Episode I sit down again and talk with Dr. Lauryn DeGreeff. She has complete more research since the last time we talked to her and has focused on odor mixtures. We talk about mixture vs cocktail and debunk a few myths that exist in the K9 world.

    In my intro I cover the topic of FALSE ALERTS and what a 3 main causes and some ideas on how to fix them.

    PHD, Forensic Chemistry, Florida International University

    Dr. Lauryn E. DeGreeff has worked in the field of analytical chemistry in support of canine detection for more than 12 years. She received a Ph.D. in Chemistry with an emphasis in Forensic Science from Florida International University in 2010. Her research focused on the sampling, characterization, and delivery of human odor, living and deceased, for the purpose of canine detection. Following the completion of her doctorate, she worked as a research fellow at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Counterterrorism and Forensic Science Research Unit. Her research focus was detection and determination of human scent and odor and human blood or the development / improvement of canine training aids and training methods. Dr. DeGreeff began her research at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in 2012 with research efforts focused on the characterization of explosives for instrumental and canine detection. She has since developed and patented a canine training tool for training on mixed odors, which has recently been brought to commercial market. Additional research has included a chemistry-based approach to studying canine olfaction for the purpose of improving canine training and informing field vapor sampling practices. Dr. DeGreeff has published numerous journal articles, holds three patents, has presented her research at numerous national and international conferences, and frequently gives educational seminars law enforcement officers and military personnel.

  • In this Episode I speak with Craig Koshyk and Bart Rogers. We discuss the history of breeds and why they do what they do. We go over why we tend to pick dogs they way we do in the USA and what we really need to pay attention to.... more than just what the breed is. Often times decisions are made based off what a handler likes vs what a handler needs. Also, little is considered as to the genetic history of the dog. A pointer is not just a pointer and a lab may not be just a retriever.

    Craig Koshyk: Craig is a self proclaimed dog nut, canine historian, photographer and writer. He has studied breeds and their history all over the world. Check out his work at https://pointingdogblog.blogspot.com

    Bart Rogers: Bart has been developing and training explosives detection dogs, and instructing handler courses, for 10 years. Bart specializes in the foundational training of green dogs for explosives detection. He has successfully trained hundreds of explosives detection dogs for groups including VWK9, ATF, Department of Justice, and others. Wildlife conservation Bart has trained and deployed dogs for ecological conservation of: Eastern striped and Eastern spotted skunk, Black bear ,Burmese and North African rock pythons in the Florida Everglades Bonneted bat, Protected sport fish species (developed and implemented first Illegal Fish Filet Detection dog program for the Alabama Marine Resources Enforcement Department) Biological detection In addition to training dogs for operational services Bart has also been involved in training dogs for olfactory detection research of biological targets, including the first dogs trained to detect a live virus. Animal-assisted therapy Bart has trained service and assistance dogs for the Veterans Administration, and trained the first therapy dog for Auburn University's Student Counseling Services.

  • This Episode we speak with Mike Suttle of Logan Haus Kennels... Mike is a well know breeder and trainer. Mike has well proven breedings of Malinois and Dutch Shepherds as well as Labradors. I personally have had 2 dogs from Logan Haus (1 Malinois and 1 Labrador) both have been outstanding dogs. *Episode Warning, Mike is on a cell phone during this interview and at times has spotty signal, he cuts out from time to time but you can still follow what he is saying and speaking about. Logan Haus Kennels is owned by Mike Suttle. Mike has been training and raising working dogs for over 30 years. He began with the first working sled dog kennel in West Virginia where he trained Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes. At age13, he titled his first dog in obedience. Growing up on a cattle farm, he learned how to train herding dogs for livestock. Throughout his high school years, he worked as a veterinary assistant. He then spent 8 years in the United States Marine Corps where he was first introduced to the military working dog program. For the last 20 years, he has dedicated his efforts solely on working military and police dogs. He has attended over 50 military and police dog seminars and has spent thousands of hours training with the best police dog trainers throughout the world. As a breeder Mike has produced puppies that have been used in USAR, Police, SWAT, US Customs, US Border Patrol, DOD, as well as International Police, Security, Customs, and Special Operations. Logan Haus Kennels has bred, raised and prepared more puppies from birth to being selected and used for Tier 1 SOCOM positions than any other kennel in the United States. Mike has earned titles in Schutzhund, SDA, and AKC and has trained many police service dogs. Mike has also worked as the co-owner of Signature K9 for 5 years where he developed many new pieces of training equipment and spent hundreds of hours working in the field with military working dog handlers and police K-9 handlers to discuss training and equipment issues. In 2013 Mike started a Canine Trainers School and has helped professional trainers from several countries to better understand dog training in the areas of shaping behaviors, bite development, and odor detection. Together with input and feedback from other trainers, Mike developed a very effective system to start and imprint puppies as young as 5 weeks old in detection work, this system is being adopted by many programs all over the World who are recognizing the benefits of starting with puppies and teaching them the skills they need as they develop into detector dogs. Mike has recently completed a 3 year rotation as an Explosives Detection K-9 handler and consultant in Afghanistan on a security contract. Logan Haus Kennels was included in a feature about elite Special Operations canines on CBS 60 Minutes.

  • On this podcast, we get to finally discuss the cognition testing and research on how predictable the cognition tests on puppies are in determining if they are potential detection or working dogs. Many of us who work breed or train dogs always know its a crap shoot at times to know if the puppy we are working with can or will turn out to do what we hope.

    Dr. Emily Bray conducted her post-doctoral research associate at the Arizona Canine Cognition Center (in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona) and Canine Companions for Independence, where I study how early developmental, behavioral, and cognitive factors impact later life outcomes.

    I earned my PhD in Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania where I worked with Robert Seyfarth, Dorothy Cheney, and James Serpell. For my dissertation, I partnered with The Seeing Eye, Inc. to conduct a longitudinal study investigating puppy development, which involved tracking a cohort of 138 puppies from birth until completion of the program.

    Prior to UPenn, I earned a B.A. in Psychology and English from Duke University, where I worked at the Duke Canine Cognition Center studying inhibitory control in pet and Canine Companions for Independence® assistance dogs with Evan MacLean and Brian Hare.
