at airports, festivals, down ur local street, in ur pub, and while ur going to the toilet, ppl get harrassed by sniffer dogs. An example is toby whose going to global gathering, has anyone tried using dog repellant, that they sell at my local garden centre, so that the dogs wouldnt go near u, or would they just bark at uJuly 23, 2007 at 9:08 pm #731843
shovin them in an inhaler, or a few layers of clingfilm with deodrant sprayed on a couple usually work

That is rubbish, these dogs (if trained properly and these dogs at festivals etc often aren’t and are just for display / to scare people from bringing stuff) they can smell thru clingfilm and deodrant. Do you really think thats going to be a deterant? If you’ve touched the drugs then the scent is on you and the scent will transfer onto anything you’ve put the drugs in.
These dogs get tired easily tho apparently and can only work for 15mins at a time. In theory tho there’s nothing you can do to hide the smell of drugs unfortunately you just got to hope there either just their for show, tired or not trained to sniff the substance you’re carrying.July 23, 2007 at 11:27 pm #731845
you wrap with clingfilm, wash your hands throuroughly, wrap with another, wrap another, spray deodrant, wrap another, aftershave, wrap a few more times
as many times, depends how paranoid you are innitJuly 23, 2007 at 11:30 pm #731838
they definitely have a short attention span and are better suited to sniffing out substances in a warehouse / baggage environment but some dogs they have sensitive noses no doubt… they caught a few people in pubs in my town before the smoking ban with 1 e in their pocket
maybe try shitting yourself before going into a festival ?July 24, 2007 at 2:30 am #731839
Become a crusty, and get a dog on a rope yourself (doesn’t matter how well trained the dog is, another dog will cause much general excitement and bottom sniffing – something that will make other scents much more difficult to read)
Carry a bag of aniseeds around – most mutts go a bit crazy for that smell, and will hunt it out in preference to anything else (you could try tom-cat urine too, if you don’t mind reeking of tom-cat piss…:laugh_at:)
Coffee is good (it has a thick, oily smell that hides other less pungent things – even from a dedicated snuffler)
At the end of the day, if you’ve been anywhere the substance the dog is trained for has been used, you will smell of “reward” to it and it will tag you – the trick is fooling the handler by keeping it undetectable to them (ie – hide it well). If they search and find nothing, you say you were sitting in a pub garden, and someone nearby might have been smoking herb (the dogs are usually trained to just sit in front of suspects if they detect the smell, not search for the source, and are mostly an excuse to search people without “reasonable cause”).
Or you could pretend a phobia of dogs, and have a hairy fit if it comes within 20 feet (say you were bitten as a kid or something…:wink:)July 24, 2007 at 1:33 pm #731858boothy wrote:you wrap with clingfilm, wash your hands throuroughly, wrap with another, wrap another, spray deodrant, wrap another, aftershave, wrap a few more times

That doesn’t work the dog can smell right thru a thousand layers of clingfilm. The only thing to stop the smell is if it was in a metal sealed airproof box or something. Stuff like clingfilm and deodrant doesn’t work, nor does coffee or anything else. If you’re going to a festival or something where there’s going to be sniffer dogs then just make you hide your stuff well, somewhere where they can’t be found without strip search.July 25, 2007 at 3:19 am #731832Anonymous
Scientifically proven fact:
Mustard can hide the smell of almost anything (except, it was found, base speed paste).
Honest! They did tests on it. However, I reckon coppers know this and if you’re walking around with a jar of mustard in your pocket, you’re gonna look a bit dodgy…
Failing that, if you’re not prepared to pay the full price of carrying gear around, then don’t…July 25, 2007 at 3:16 pm #731859
Got any proof for that fact about mustard?July 25, 2007 at 7:03 pm #731833Anonymous
A video from an old Biology teacher who did his phd on research into ways to get around the techniques used by smugglers, namely when a company from Britain sent a batch of mustard to, for instance, Afghanistan, for it to be loaded up with Opium and sent back as “rejected goods.” Quite ingenius, really, until people started to realise that your Joe Bloggs Afghan hadn’t ever seen Mustard before, let alone used it in his cooking…July 26, 2007 at 11:09 am #731846
dogs have been proven and trained to be able to smell cancer inside the human body..
so drugs stashed on your person wrapped or not !!!
you dont stand a chance !!!!!:weee:
check it out !!!!Quote:In this study, five household dogs were trained within a short 3-week period to detect lung or breast cancer by sniffing the breath of cancer participants. The trial itself was comprised of 86 cancer patients (55 with lung cancer and 31 with breast cancer) and a control sample of 83 healthy patients. All cancer patients had recently been diagnosed with cancer through biopsy-confirmed conventional methods such as a mammogram, or CAT scan and had not yet undergone any chemotherapy treatment. During the study, the dogs were presented with breath samples from the cancer patients and the controls, captured in a special tube. Dogs were trained to give a positive identification of a cancer patient by sitting or lying down directly in front of a test station containing a cancer patient sample, while ignoring control samples. Standard, humane methods of dog training employing food rewards and a clicker, as well as assessment of the dog’s behavior by observers blinded to the identity of the cancer patient and control samples, were used in the experiment.
The results of the study showed that dogs can detect breast and lung cancer with sensitivity and specificity between 88% and 97%. The high accuracy persisted even after results were adjusted to take into account whether the lung cancer patients were currently smokers. Moreover, the study also confirmed that the trained dogs could even detect the early stages of lung cancer, as well as early breast cancer. The researchers concluded that breath analysis has the potential to provide a substantial reduction in the uncertainty currently seen in cancer diagnosis, once further work has been carried out to standardize and expand this methodology.

Hang about, that’s to do with smelling breath… Ever noticed that when someone’s been ill, they smell that weird (as my mum puts it) “not well smell?”
In the same sense, surely the dog could pick up a similar scent, what with the sensitivity of their noses being ridiculoulsy higher than that of a human.
Even so, I’m sticking with my old biology teacher… He has a phd on the subject… It’s good enough for me…
