Coronavirus: Dogs to be trained to detect virus

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 12 Dog13

Specialist sniffer dogs are to be tested to see if they can detect coronavirus.
The charity Medical Detection Dogs has already trained dogs to spot the scent of malaria, cancer and Parkinson's.
It plans trials on the current pandemic virus with Durham University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).
Charity boss Dr Claire Guest said it had to find out how to "safely catch the odour of the virus from patients".
"In principle, we're sure that dogs could detect Covid-19," she said.

'Fast and effective'

If this is proven, the dogs could be used to screen anyone, including those with no symptoms.
"This would be fast, effective and non-invasive and make sure the limited NHS testing resources are only used where they are really needed," Dr Guest said.
LSHTM head of disease control Prof James Logan said research showed dogs could detect the odour of malaria infection with a level of accuracy "above the World Health Organisation standards for a diagnostic".

Medical Detection Dogs said each disease had its own unique odour.
Dogs could be ready in six weeks to help provide a "rapid, non-invasive diagnosis", it said.
They could potentially also be trained to tell if someone had a fever.
Prof Steve Lindsay, from Durham University's Department of Biosciences, said detection dogs could be used at airports to rapidly identify people carrying the virus.
"This would help prevent the re-emergence of the disease after we have brought the present epidemic under control," he said.

"Notoriously unreliable," Eh ?

Any mother or parent can detect the smell of ketone (acetone) on an infants's breath when they are going down with something.  Any mother or parent can detect a difference in the contents of a nappy when something is going wrong.

And we have almost no sense of smell compared with a dog's

Coronavirus: Dog delivers food to quarantined neighbour

‘It’s been a real treat,’ says neighbour



A dog in Colorado has been helping its owner’s neighbour get through self-isolation by delivering food supplies to her home.

Renee Hellman has underlying respiratory issues and has been advised to quarantine herself completely due to the coronavirus outbreak, making her unable to go food shopping.

In a bid to support Ms Hellman, her neighbour of 10 years, Karen Evelth, enlisted the help of her golden retriever, Sunny, to ensure she has everything she needs.

“She got the list, she gave it to Sunny, Sunny brought it to me,” Ms Evelth told KKTV. “I went to the store, got her groceries, and he delivered them all to her.”

Ms Hellman has said the visits from Sunny have not only helped her immensely, not just from a practical perspective, but from a companionship one too given that she is home alone.

“It’s been fun,” she said. “It’s been a real treat.

“Little things like Sunny coming over to visit is nice and it makes you feel good. It’s a way of communicating.”

Sunny has also been collecting the post for Ms Evelth, who hopes her story will inspire similar acts of kindness.

“Anybody can do something small, that can be so helpful,” she said.

Coronavirus: Dog called ‘Soda Pup’ delivers wine during lockdown

Brindle boxer transports bottles directly to customers in horse saddlebag

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 12 Dog-1_10

A dog delivering wine to people’s doorsteps amid the coronavirus lockdown is stealing the hearts of residents in Maryland.

The pooch, better known by the name Soda Pup, is allowing customers to continue purchasing wine from the Stone House Urban Winery while observing social distancing measures.

The adorable 11-year-old brindle boxer wasn’t always a hard-working wine delivery pup, but eagerly filled the position when the coronavirus stay-at-home measures meant customers could no longer pop into the winery in person.

“After we could no longer have our guests come into the winery in a social setting, I noticed that Soda was looking a little sad,” Stone House owner Lori Yata told Today.

“You see, every time the door would chime, Soda would jump up to greet whomever was coming in. It was so funny — when a regular guest would come in, their head would swivel over to Soda’s bed and he would be acknowledged before the rest of us,” Soda Pup’s owner told the broadcaster.

Apparently Soda Pup has more than taken to the new role, carrying the wine in a horse saddlebag and carefully transporting the bottles to customers for treats.

“When we get the call, I hold up Soda’s vest and he hurries on over. Not exaggerating, he really hurries over and stands ready,” Ms Yata said.

Customers call ahead of time to secure their wine, and when they arrive at the car park to pick up Soda trots out to the car park for door-to-door delivery.

“I put a couple treats in the pack, a bag for the wine, and the two bottles of wine. I then open the door and he marches on up the walk to the curb and parking lot to deliver the wine,“ Ms Yata told Today.

“I do have to make sure there are no critters around, such as geese, squirrels, bunnies etc. ... Come on, he is a dog!”

The creative solution to the obstacle of social distancing in the winery’s transactions has provided a small lifeline for the business, which like many others has taken a hit due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Soda has been by my side through some of the toughest times of my life,“ the winery owner said. ”Once again, he is by my side when I have no idea how this small business is going to survive these most difficult times.“

“Some customers will buy more bottles of wine so their kids can see Soda deliver it. Again, it puts a smile on so many faces, young and old,” the owner said.

However, Ms Yata emphasised that, ultimately, it is the happiness that Soda Pup brings to her customers and the love her dog receives in return that makes the unique delivery method worth it.

“If Soda puts a smile on at least one face, then he has completed his mission in life,” she said.

Don’t you just love those animal rescue videos that truly make your day? Every day on the internet, you hear of some self-sacrificing human going out of their way to pull an animal out of distress. While such heroes deserve credit, how many times do animals get the credit for saving a life? You’ll be surprised to know that animals are smarter than you think because they sense danger and respond to it faster. Just like Lulu the pig who saved her owner’s life or William the parrot. What’s astonishing is the fact that animals won’t hesitate to rescue a human but you don’t see that very often do you? In fact, many animals have been misunderstood for their good intentions. Here is a list of ten unbelievable animals who rescued people that will make you shed a tear or two. Don’t forget to read on till the number 1, the most sensational animal rescue event that made headlines around the world.

Trained Dogs fascinate me they have high intelligence it's amazing what they can be trained to do. Dogs are also loyal.

And he adds: "In reality, when the McCanns went to Oprah's Show, the blanket was mentioned. At a given moment, when Oprah tells Kate that she heard her mention a blanket several times, Kate argued that a mother who misses a child always wants to know if she is comfortable, if she is warm, and added, referring to Maddie, that sometimes she asked herself if the person who had taken her would cover her up with her little blanket (but the blanket was on the bed after Maddie, supposedly, disappeared!!!).

Coronavirus: Trial begins to see if dogs can 'sniff out' virus
 
6 hours ago
 
A UK trial to see whether specialist medical sniffer dogs can detect coronavirus in humans is set to begin.


The dogs are already trained to detect odours of certain cancers, malaria and Parkinson's disease by the charity Medical Detection Dogs.
The first phase of the trial will be led by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, along with the charity and Durham University.
It has been backed with £500,000 of government funding.
Innovation minister Lord Bethell said he hoped the dogs could provide "speedy results" as part of the government's wider testing strategy.


            Dogs could help 'sniff out' coronavirus
            Sniffer dogs can identify malaria


The trial will explore whether the "Covid dogs" - made up of Labradors and cocker spaniels - can spot the virus in humans from odour samples before symptoms appear.
It will establish whether so-called bio-detection dogs, which could each screen up to 250 people per hour, could be used as a new early warning measure to detect Covid-19 in the future.
The first phase will involve NHS staff in London hospitals collecting odour samples from those infected with coronavirus and those who are uninfected.
Six dogs will then go through training to identify the virus from the samples.
 
More than 10 years of research gathered by Medical Detection Dogs has shown the dogs can be trained to sniff out the odour of disease at the equivalent dilution of one teaspoon of sugar in two Olympic-sized swimming pools of water.
Dr Claire Guest, the charity's co-founder and chief executive, said she was "sure our dogs will be able to find the odour of Covid-19".
If that proves to be the case, the dogs will then move into a "second phase to test them in live situations, following which we hope to work with other agencies to train more dogs for deployment", she said.
 
 Prof James Logan, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: "Our previous work has shown that malaria has a distinctive odour, and with medical detection dogs, we successfully trained dogs to accurately detect malaria.
"This, combined with the knowledge that respiratory disease can change body odour, makes us hopeful that the dogs can also detect Covid-19."

If coronavirus or covid-19 gives off a distinctive, trainable smell then dogs at airports etc. might be valuable.  But train, test, deploy is too slow.  Frothy story.  But no, I don't think anyone is going to get screened by a covid-19 dog in reality.

A UK trial to see whether specialist medical sniffer dogs can detect coronavirus in humans is set to begin.


The dogs are already trained to detect odours of certain cancers, malaria and Parkinson's disease by the charity Medical Detection Dogs.
The first phase of the trial will be led by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, along with the charity and Durham University.
It has been backed with £500,000 of government funding.
Innovation minister Lord Bethell said he hoped the dogs could provide "speedy results" as part of the government's wider testing strategy.


            Dogs could help 'sniff out' coronavirus
            Sniffer dogs can identify malaria


The trial will explore whether the "Covid dogs" - made up of Labradors and cocker spaniels - can spot the virus in humans from odour samples before symptoms appear.
It will establish whether so-called bio-detection dogs, which could each screen up to 250 people per hour, could be used as a new early warning measure to detect Covid-19 in the future.
The first phase will involve NHS staff in London hospitals collecting odour samples from those infected with coronavirus and those who are uninfected.
Six dogs will then go through training to identify the virus from the samples.
 
More than 10 years of research gathered by Medical Detection Dogs has shown the dogs can be trained to sniff out the odour of disease at the equivalent dilution of one teaspoon of sugar in two Olympic-sized swimming pools of water.
Dr Claire Guest, the charity's co-founder and chief executive, said she was "sure our dogs will be able to find the odour of Covid-19".
If that proves to be the case, the dogs will then move into a "second phase to test them in live situations, following which we hope to work with other agencies to train more dogs for deployment", she said.
 
 Prof James Logan, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: "Our previous work has shown that malaria has a distinctive odour, and with medical detection dogs, we successfully trained dogs to accurately detect malaria.
"This, combined with the knowledge that respiratory disease can change body odour, makes us hopeful that the dogs can also detect Covid-19."

'COVID DOGS': Government backs canines to 'sniff out' coronavirus before symptoms emerge

Government trials 'Super Six' sniffer dogs to detect coronavirus among public

Cancer sniffing dogs could help with coronavirus detection

If coronavirus or covid-19 gives off a distinctive, trainable smell then dogs at airports etc. might be valuable.  But train, test, deploy is too slow.  Frothy story.  But no, I don't think anyone is going to get screened by a covid-19 dog in reality.
we have been told for years the dogs can detect Cancer....Any evidence they have ever been used clinically....I dont think so.
We should never forget the fact that 12 year old Tia Sharp went missing in June 2000.  Her grandmother's boyfriend was eventually arrested for her murder.

As far as I can remember police cadaver dogs were brought in to the house to search for her body, one gave a signal to the opening to the loft which was ignored as it wasn't strong enough. a TV or newspaper journalist did an interview with a family member whilst sitting under the opening to the loft.  Later the cadaver dogs were brought in again and one strongly indicated to the loft door.  The loft was searched and Tia's body was found wrapped in black plastic bags.

So a TV/newspaper journalist sat under her dead body while it lay rotting above his head.  Good going, journalist whoever the hell you were. 

It just shows you the depths of depravity that people will go to when their backs are against the wall to get rid of a body and can carry on their normal lives as if nothing has ever happened.

Scientists Find That Dogs Can Sniff Out Coronavirus ‘Far Better’ Than Any Man-Made Method

Those incredibly 'unreliable' DOGS............again! - Page 12 EYHjy3QWAAA4uho-696x465

1 July 2020

Scientists at the University of Helsinki have found that dogs are ‘far better’ at sniffing out the coronavirus than any man-made methods, such as machines or tests.

Researchers in Finland have been training dogs so that they can detect the presence of the dangerous virus simply through their sense of smell.

The long incubation period of the virus, the unreliability of quick tests, and shortage of PCR tests have been factors which make the containment of the virus very difficult.

Millions of people have already contracted the virus and others continue to infect those around them because they are simply unaware that they have it in the first place. Therefore, if man’s best friend can successfully sniff out the virus this could be a great step in the route to stop the pandemic.

Anna Hielm-Björkman, the associate professor who is part of the research group, has argued that in many instances the dogs can even event detect the presence of Covid-19 in patients before they even show any symptoms.

Amaral was right.

He didn't libel the McCanns.
Danie Krugel has invested in an EVRD Dog, and now has Patents granted on his machine.

Qauntum Detection Solutions claims to also be able to locate COVID 19.

Interesting if proved accurate.

Counter-claim Goncalo?

When little April Jones went missing on 1 October 2012 specialist dogs were brought in that can detect a cadaver under water as a river ran through the town she lived in and it went into the sea.  Unfortunately her remains were found burned in the fireplace of the person who abducted her.

Dogs can also detect hidden firearms, ammunition, money among other things, but I expect most people know that but I thought I would just reiterate it.  There was a TV programme on last year about their training.  It was fascinating to watch.

'Heroic' dog given Speaker's chair during Commons explosives sweep
·       2 hours ago

·       A sniffer dog praised for her heroism in the London Bridge terror attack was given the Speaker's chair as she checked the House of Commons.


·       Sir Lindsay Hoyle let Poppy, an explosives detective dog, sit in his chair as part of her sweep of the Commons and Lords chambers.


·       The spaniel was awarded a "canine OBE" for her work in checking for potential explosives following the 2017 attack.


·       Eight people died during the attack in Borough Market.

Her handler, PC Spalding, said Poppy, now five, went into buildings, clearing them for armed officers in the aftermath of the attack.
"Even though we clocked up a marathon 30-hour shift, she was still happy to carry on. She is amazing and I put my trust in her 100%," she said. 
Sir Lindsay, who has a menagerie of pets, including a parrot called Boris and Maggie, a 16kg tortoise, said: "I felt honoured to meet Poppy and her handler PC Spalding - who are a brave and talented double act. 
"We are so lucky to have police dogs searching Parliament every day to keep us safe. It's only when you hear about the escapades of Poppy and all her canine colleagues, that you appreciate the vital work they do to protect us from harm." 
PC Spalding and Poppy were doing their regular sweep in the Houses of Parliament when they bumped into Sir Lindsay. 
"He's really nice - you can see he really loves dogs. He even allowed her to sit on his chair. She was more than happy to smile for the camera," the officer said.
