This Day in History: 1942 – The Quartermaster Corps of the United States Army begins training dogs for the newly-established War Dog Program, or “K-9 Corps.”

Fact of the Day: The K-9 Corps initially accepted over 30 breeds of dogs for training in 1942, but the list was soon narrowed to seven: German Shepherds, Belgian Sheepdogs, Doberman Pinschers, Collies, Siberian Huskies, Malamutes, and Eskimo Dogs.  Over one million dogs have served in the K-9 Corps since its advent.

#StrangeButTrue: Dogs have a sense of smell that is 40 times better than ours.  Because of this, your dog can pick up on the subtle changes in your scent, which can help them figure out how you are feeling – such as smelling your perspiration when you become nervous or fearful.  Dogs can also detect certain diseases before symptoms present, and are capable of determining whether a household member is pregnant.
