On February 22, 2012, Cooper and Boone returned to Vanderbilt University's Law School to provide third year law students with insight as to how canines are being used as a tool to gather information. The class, led by Adjunct Professor and award winning journalist Willy Stern, provides students with exposure of how various professions use unorthodox methods to gather and analyze information.
Students were first provided with an understanding of how dogs are being used in law enforcement, medicine and business. The students were given an overview of how these special "tools" are selected, trained and deployed at fire scenes. After the formal lecture, the students were given a demonstration of how the dog locates and alerts to ignitable fluids found at fire scenes.
