Humans Odors In general, all mammals produce several different odors. Expired air, urine, feces, exocrine glandular secretions, and emissions from body openings (mouth, nose, ears, anus, and the urogenital area) all contain odorous substances. Since the subject of this book concerns the individuality of human odor traces left on objects or soil at crime scenes, we will focus here on the odor of human skin. In general, the 20 K9 SCENT TRAINING Raft Releasing raft Bacteria Vapor Dead cell Dead cells, or rafts, flake off from the outside skin layer, carrying bacteria and an accompanying scent.

At the time of track-laying, the soil is moist. 2. Until tracking has begun, the air remains cold, calm, and (almost) saturated with water vapor. 3. The temperature of the air and ground stay the same from when the track was laid to when tracking is performed. MOIST SOIL, DRY SOIL We should examine one more consideration relative to tracks and their ability to hold odors. When the air is humid, the soil also absorbs water (dew). Dogs always track better on moist ground than on dry ground. To illustrate this fact, we worked out the following experiment.

These odors, however, can be helpful to search-and-rescue dogs as they perform their duties. In particular, the odors of breath and sometimes urine (excreted during panic or excitement) can be important odor sources for dogs. Some trainers believe that the individual odor of the tracklayer plays no particular role in a dog’s ability to track that person. According to them, other factors determine the viability of a track: the odor of the shoes worn when making the track and differences in the shoe size and weight of tracklayers, who sink more or less into the soil, damage plants, and in doing so cause stronger or weaker odors to be emitted from the soil and damaged foliage.
