Dog have not only offered love and affections but worked side by side with their human counterpart for centuries. With an incredible sense of smell, the dog can smell thing 10 thousand times greater than a human can.  A well-trained sniffer dog is used in the detection of explosives,  illegal drug,  theft and various other crimes.
On This occasion  Dr. Rajesh Grover, Director Science City said That   In human-populated landscapes, domestic dogs are the most abundant terrestrial carnivore, with a global population close to a billion. In India, the total dog population is estimated to be about 60 million. All dogs are part of the same species, but their genes can dictate whether they are Chihuahua or a Great Dane. There can be a lot of variation in genes that make up the genetic diversity of dogs in terms of colors, sizes, and shapes. There is a need to bring awareness in the society about faunal biodiversity with a focus on salient features of various breeds of dogs.

Further, he said with this objective, PGSC, Kapurthala is organizing 9th and 10thAll Breed Open Dog Show at its premises. I am sure that this event will provide an opportunity for
our visitors to explore diversity and enjoy every moment. A Special Dog Show was organized by Central Jail Kapurthala on this occasion.
