This is part one of two on how to defeat, avoid and counter working dogs. If you ever find yourself trying to avoid or defeat police dogs, military dogs or tracking dogs, I explain some ways to defeat dogs and debunk the super power of dogs.

Can dogs tell the time with their NOSES? Changes in scent may help canines keep track of passing hours
Dogs have long been known to have an extraordinary sense of smell.
Expert backs up claim that ‘dogs smell time’ in new book
While for most humans, the world is primarily visual, for dogs, their world is based on scents
Dogs have long been know to pick up scents that humans can’t, but they may also be able to tell the time using their snouts.
The theory has been around for some time, but a new book backs up the idea that ‘dogs smell time, ‘As each day wears a new smell, its hours mark changes in odours that your dog can notice,’ explains Professor Alexandra Horowitz.

The dog expert makes the claim in her new book ‘Being A Dog’, which is based on her research at Barnard College’s Dog Cognition Lab, of which she is the founder.
While for most humans, the world is primarily visual, for dogs, their world is based on scents.
Dogs are often used to sniff out drugs, explosives, disaster victims, dead bodies and even cancers, thanks to their extraordinary power of smell.
Even for humans, scents can give clues as to what time of day it is, such as the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning.
The canine expert believes that dogs can detect subtle changes in scent during the day, giving them a sense of time.
Police are recruiting specially trained dogs to sniff out USB sticks used by paedophiles.]
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio has enlisted a 17-month-old Labrador retriever named Ruger, who can pick up on a single chemical found in flash drives, SD cards, and other electronics to find hidden caches of child pornography.
By isolating the odor specific to these electronics, a dog’s powerful sense of smell can be trained to hone in on unseen evidence.
