Moss, a Labrador, is still in training. He is set to find the smallest, most elusive, and best camouflaged animals in the country. Moss and the other dogs in the team are the first doggos in the whole world to find these endangered animals in captivity.
More on the doggo, he was once a family pet but because of his energy, the former dog owners had to give him up. As of now, Moss is being exposed to different environments and is developing his bond an trust with his handlers.
Aside from this job of Moss, the team he will be part of will also be helping Tasmanian devils. This animal is geared towards extinction so the dogs will be trained to smell this animal’s odor profile so that it can detect where a female Tasmanian devil is so they can be introduced to a male Tasmanian devil. That way, they can breed at the best time. The project also aims to explore the possibility of detection doggos being able to know if a female Tasmanian devil is pregnant and lactating. The project wants humans to be as hands-free as possible and only collect data from doggos.
