Cat Warren


Cat Warren is a university professor and former journalist with an admittedly odd hobby: She and her German shepherd, Solo, spent eight years searching for the dead. Solo is a cadaver dog. What started as a way to harness Solo’s unruly energy and enthusiasm soon became a calling that introduced her to the hidden and fascinating universe of working dogs, their handlers, and their trainers. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World (Touchstone, March 2015). Follow @Cat_Warren
