Cadaver dog handler Cat Warren at Vintage Books

Join Vintage Books in welcoming author and cadaver-dog handler Cat Warren on Saturday, March 14th, 2015. Warren will be at the bookshop from 4-5:30pm discussing her book What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World. Copies will be available at a 10% discount from the cover price for the duration of the event. In What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World, Warren uses her odyssey with Solo to enter the broader world of scent-detection dogs, revealing the remarkable capabilities of working dogs, their handlers, and their trainers. What the Dog Knows tells the stories of cadaver dogs, drug and bomb detecting K9s, tracking and apprehension dogs—even dogs who can locate unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers and help find drowning victims more than two hundred feet below the surface of a lake. Working dogs sometimes seem magical, as they distinguish scent, cover territory, and accomplish tasks that no machine is yet capable of. Cat Warren is a professor at North Carolina State University, where she teaches science journalism and creative nonfiction. She is also a cadaver-dog handler. She lives with her husband, David, and two German Shepherds, Solo and Coda, in Durham, North Carolina.
