Scent detection dogs are the focal point of the Penn Vet Working Dog Center.   The center opened on September 11, 2012, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  It is the nation’s premier research and educational facility dedicated to harnessing the unique strengths of canine partners.  Their goal is to produce an elite group of scent-detection dogs for public safety and health.  Dogs in the program are named in honor of individuals who lost their lives on 9/11 and canine heroes who served following the attacks.
