Can you trick a police dog by hiding the smell?

A common misconception of many lovers of resinous florets is that they try to mask the scent of cannabis with a more acrid odor. Others, on the other hand, assume they can fool the police dog with careful packaging. Unfortunately, both the former and the latter are wrong. Make yourselves comfortable I'm sure I have something to surprise you.

ALL dogs can smell drugs!

All dogs have the ability to smell drugs (yes, yes, with proper training yours can too). A properly trained police dog is different from a regular dog in that it is trained to report the smell of a drug. This message is called a ""warning,"" which is the term I will use from now on. The warning involves a noticeable change in behavior caused by interest in the odor, followed by scratching near the source of the odor.

What's so special about a dog's sense of smell?

Unlike humans, a dog is able to separate mixed odors. When a human is offered soup, he sees different ingredients but smells the same. A dog, on the other hand, can smell, distinguish and separate each ingredient contained in a dish, because in fact, the soup gives off not one but many smells. This peculiarity explains why the scent masking, which smugglers often use, that I mentioned earlier, does not work. If a smuggler wrapped half a kilo of cannabis in tissue softener cloths, then wrapped it well in foil and finally placed it in a coffee can. The dog will smell the fabric softener, after the foil, the coffee and finally the cannabis. This phenomenon is called odor cone, and it is worth noting that this process takes time. A police dog cannot properly separate odors if it is in a hurry.

A trained dog senses when you've been smoking

Cannabis contains microscopic dust particles that can linger on human hands. This cone dust can be transferred to anything that is touched after being packaged. Car doors, steering wheels and personal clothing can contain these particles. This also includes marks on the body, hair, and clothing after smoking.

Science can fool a police dog!

Police dogs can't smell through the material. But everything is not so fine, for odors permeate outward and create the odor cone I wrote about above. Almost all materials have pores through which odor passes, even plastic bags have tiny microscopic pores. To see for you, put fish (or any other scented product) in a plastic bag and smell the outside of it. You'll notice that you can't smell the fish, wait a few hours and you'll smell the soaked fish on the outside of the bag. What about non-porous materials? Lead is a heavy non-porous metal, but if you hide your florets in a lead box, I'm afraid it's no longer the dog, but his partner will be suspicious.

Temperature affects permeability, what does that mean?

Lower temperatures slow penetration, so freezing your stash in a block of ice will slow penetration. Again, almost nothing but a block of ice can make a resourceful policeman suspicious.

A false warning is a cop's trick!

In 2006, criminal expert witness Barry Cooper was the first to report false warnings from drug-reporting dogs. Barry has done a comprehensive study of the mechanics of trained dogs that includes videos of false and true warnings. So what are ""false or forced warnings""? The repetitive process of verbal encouragement followed by rewarding the dog for being malleable allows any and all police dogs to be manipulated into scratching WITHOUT the presence of a drug scent!

Barry Cooper deserves your attention

This man is a real find. Barry Cooper is a former American police officer, an expert witness in criminal cases, now doing what he does to advise on drug cases, Barry also offers drug treatment with ibogaine (hallucinogen) and teaches how not to get trapped by cops and how to pass a drug test. Barry runs his own YouTube channel, where he tells valuable information about cops, their tricks and other important matters - the NeverGetBusted Barry Cooper channel.

Tip from Barry: What should I do to avoid getting caught on a false warning? K9 is the name of canine units. Because of the consonance with the word canine - сa9 - K9 (canine).

""I have a tip about K9 police officers, and it works. Dozens of people have reported to me that this method has worked, and it once helped me. Every time a K-9 is used to search your vehicle, state loudly and boldly that you know the police can issue a false K-9 warning, and you know what a real warning looks like. It scares the officer, and after hearing your position, he usually walks his dog around the car and then walks away.""

Fact from Barry: Cannabis in the gas tank

""If you put the weed in a plastic bag, spray it with perfume, then seal it in a plastic tube and drop it into your car's fuel tank, there will be a cone of scent on the outside of the fuel. The K-9 will enter this fragrance cone and smell a plastic bag, then gasoline, perfume, plastic tubing and finally marijuana. This explains how K-9 found hundreds of pounds of marijuana [100 pounds - 45.3 kilograms] hidden in gas tanks.""

What can't police dogs detect?

Police dogs are trained to detect cannabis, cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin, but they are not trained to detect mushrooms or LSD.

How have people tried to trick drug-sniffing dogs?

You and I have found out that a dog trained to look for drugs is impossible to fool [at least very difficult], but that doesn't mean you can't mess with it. Some people who travel with cones spray their car tires with synthetic deer scent (urine) or travel with a pet to create this confusion. Even if the police officer removes the pet from the car, the dog may still be too concerned with protecting its territory to concentrate on its job of putting you in remote locations from traveling.

To summarize

Tricking a dog trained to look for drugs is possible, but very difficult. Most smugglers simply take precautions not to be stopped. People who travel with cannabis try to keep a low profile, obey traffic laws, and make sure their driver's license and license plates haven't expired. They clearly do not smoke cannabis while in transit.

Friends, this is a very important topic and there is a lot of material to cover and by being active you are inspiring to work more, so please feel free to share this material with your friends and send me your impressions and suggestions. I'd like to conclude by recommending an interesting article How even a well-trained drug detection dog can be wrong 84% of the time. Be careful and don't let yourself be fooled.
