Cute Video Shows A Puppy Grow Into A Big Dog Over Time

The Science Behind Dogs That Detect Dead Bodies

If you need to find a corpse, there are lots of ways to look: you can comb the woods in a line search or hunt for hidden graves with ground-penetrating radar, for instance.

No man-made machine can reliably identify the odour of decomposition, but properly trained Human Remains Detection (HRD) dogs can.


Watch Dogs Shake Colourful Paint Off Themselves In Slow Motion

So far as awful ways to die go, being attacked by a rabid animal then dying a slow, painful death must rank near the top. And exactly that happens to 55,000 people every year. Here’s how you (or your dog) can get rabies, what it does to your body as it kills you and what you can do to ensure neither of you gets it.


Dogs Can Sniff Out Thyroid Cancer In Your Urine

We know that it’s possible to detect some types of cancer by scent alone, and that dogs are even capable of sniffing it out too. Now, researchers have demonstrated that a whiff of your urine can allow our canine companions to identify whether you have thyroid cancer.


Do You Love Your Pup Enough To Buy It A $30,000 Doghouse?

What is billed as the world’s largest dog show, Crufts 2015, is getting under way in England today. And, to commemorate the occasion, Samsung tasked its designers and engineers with creating the world’s most advanced and fully featured dog house.
