The dog team can lo­cate blood not vis­i­ble at a crime scene and track peo­ple from a lo­ca­tion through blood trail­ing.

Sylvia can also de­tect the pres­ence of oxy­genated and ca­daver blood in build­ings, ve­hi­cles and out­door en­vi­ron­ments, in­clud­ing ar­eas ex­posed to weather el­e­ments.
