Do Dogs React to the Scent of Human Fear?

Do Dogs React to the Scent of Human Fear? by Bruce’sBlog

Can dogs be trained to be lie detectors based on their ability to scent fear?

First, I believe dogs are amazing animals. I also believe we really have no idea as to the extent to which they could help humans.

Here is the first thing I am thinking to the question of ”Do dogs react to the scent of human fear?” Just off the cuff, no. I believe when the dog is a long time companion it can detect many different things from there human counter part(basis on the relationship I have w/ my dog).

I may be wrong, but when police dogs search for a criminal who is on the run don’t they follow the scent of fear that a the criminal secrets?

I also think of the fact that there are dogs that can actually detect if a person has cancer or other sicknesses. Not to mention they detect several kinds of drugs and explosives.

Then we have service dogs that help people with a plethora of handicaps including but not limited to PTSD.

They provide physical and emotional support. The support they provide allows someone who is not dealing with life to a become a functioning part of their community.

At this stage I believe given the training a dog can be train to do almost anything. I am sure they have their limitations, but we have to learn what they are.

I ❤️ love to hear your thoughts so please feel free to leave a comment , opinion, or feedback.

  1. Dogs can know by scent if we are sick. And it seems they can sense danger, too. They’re being trained to detect the COVID virus. I don’t know, but maybe their limits of awareness are really far-flung.
