Finland’s Scent-ID K9-unit is headed by Ilkka Hormila, who is also an instructor of cadaver, accelerant and ID dogs at Finland’s Police Dog Training Center. Dogs from the scent laboratory in Hameenlinna, Finland can be used to compare the scent on weapons to that of the suspects in a scent line-up.

Last week when lecturing at a seminar with Sarah Kalnajs, I watched an interesting video that Sarah showed. When her friend who had a history of cluster headaches was visiting her, Sarah’s dogs performed an unusual behavior. Typically they would hang back instead of interacting with the visitor but in this case they climbed onto his lap and kept licking his face, especially in the area of his right eye. At the time her friend did not have a headache but 10 minutes later he felt one coming on.
