Paper Abstract

There are several promising methods and technologies for substance detection. The oldest of these methods is the trained detector or `sniffer' dog. We summarize what is known about the capabilities of dogs in substance detection and recommend comparative testing of the canine- human team with current technology to identify the optimum combination of methods to maximize the detection of explosives and contraband.
