Summary
  • "'Dogs in action' is an exhibition of the extraordinary world of working dogs. The book reveals the vast diversity of jobs undertaken by dogs around the world with the aim of informing and entertaining people, and offering anecdotes that all dog lovers can appreciate. There's something for everyone. Backstage, behind the scenes, on the front line, on the bowline, towing the line, towing the sled, sniffing for wellness and sniffing for illness, finding the lost, finding the illegal, there is no part of society that is untouched by dogs. Dogs, whose work allows humans to do their jobs and live their lives better, safer, faster and more efficiently than before; whose natural abilities outdo technology and machinery every time; and who provide awesome companionship along the way. From tracking poachers across the great African reserves to digging for avalanche survivors on the snow covered slops of Switzerland; from finding endangered whale poop in the North Atlantic to finding lost families in the South Pacific; from leading the blind in Australia to leading scientific research in Thailand; from detecting hidden explosives in war-torn Afghanistan to assisting the elderly and ill in New Zealand, the dogs in this book and many more like them are doing these jobs every day all around the world"--Publisher's information.
