When I worked at the IRS computer center. They were checking a contractors truck and placed him on the ground when a dog alerted on inspection. He had one of those guns that drive nails in concrete. I thought it was pretty funny.

When you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
As a military working dog handler I can tell you that my dog will hit on a single bullet...but that's what he's trained for. He has limited capability on drugs simply because he's only recently had limited training for that. You would most often find dogs like mine in airports or places where explosives need to be checked for. Most local cop dogs are drug dogs, not explosive dogs though some locals do have explosive dogs as well. There are only a few breeds that seem to have a propensity to be able to sniff both bombs and drugs and even those don't do either very well. Usually they are strong at one and o.k. at the other at best.
