PODCAST: USING DOGS TO DETECT CANCER IN PEOPLE

Service dogs can be used for a variety of things. From helping blind people navigate crowded city streets. To finding people trapped in the rubble of an earthquake. To finding missing children or fleeing criminals. But now, a noted New Jersey dog trainer is preparing canines to sniff out cancers.

Gary Baumgarten talks with trainer Janice Wolfe for the Paltalk News Network.
