* "An exemplary presentation of information in a lively, engaging way-readers will be left feeling awe for their canine companions and enthusiasm for their abilities."- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Anyone who has ever spent time with a dog knows that dogs love sniffing! They sniff out hidden food, dirty socks, and the visitor who comes to the door.&nbspBut some dogs work with police officers, soldiers, and even scientists to put their "sniffers" to work using the amazing biology behind their noses to protect people from bombs, catch criminals smuggling drugs, or help researchers locate a hard to find snail in a forest.
Nancy Castaldo lives in New York state near the Adirondacks and is the regional advisor for SCBWI-Eastern New York. She is also a photographer. She has a husband, daughter, and a huge English goldendoodle named Gatsby. www.nancycastaldo.com
