Dr Nicola Rooney (BSc PGCE PhD), Research Fellow and Lecturer in the Animal Welfare and Behaviour Group at the University of Bristol, has headed a team conducting research on working dogs for the past 15 years. She shares her expertise with our readers, examining a range of methods for training dogs to detect odours which are associated with human diseases. She also calls attention to the prime importance of teaching carers how to ensure a stress-free environment for their helpful dogs.
