After reading this article based on research by Cornell University, perhaps we need to just fatten her up a bit! From Science Daily:   See also  Cornell University (2013, March 27). More fat, less protein improves canine olfactory abilities. ScienceDaily. Retrieved April 7, 2013, from http://www.sciencedaily.com­ /releases/2013/03/130327102652.htm Mar. 27, 2013 — From sniffing out bombs and weapons to uncovering criminal evidence, dogs can help save lives and keep the peace.

Such a diet, say the researchers, appears to help dogs return to lower body temperatures after exercise, which reduces panting and, thereby, improves sniffing. The findings could change how detection dogs are fed and boost their detection abilities, says Joseph Wakshlag, associate professor of clinical studies and chief of nutrition at Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine. Wakshlag, who collaborated with researchers at Auburn University, is presenting the findings at the Companion Animal Nutrition Summit in Atlanta, held March 22-24.
