In remembrance of 9/11:
A year ago we interviewed the women behind the Penn Vet Working Dog Center, a center that trains and researches search and rescue dogs.
Cynthia Otto, founder of the center, previously worked at Ground Zero with dogs to find survivors in the rubble. She has done extensive research following the lives and health of the dogs that served there.
Annemarie DeAngelo joins Otto as the founder of the New Jersey Canine Unit (and director of the Penn center). In her 14 years of working with dogs she has found missing children, criminals, and narcotics using canine science.
Puppy-in-training Bretagne is also at the mic, as you’ll hear. She’s currently in search and rescue puppy college.
Also, protective goggles for dogs are called “doggles.” You’re welcome.
