Dogs with jobs

Today, my family got detained by airport security thanks to one of their dogs. It didn't even bark to indicate there was something wrong, though. It just kept sniffing my dad, probably because we had our dog with us in the car on the way there. FML

Different dogs are trained to alert differently. There isn't any set "alert" for drug dogs. It could be an ear twitch, or barking, or sitting, etc. so this could be how that dog alerted to the presence of drugs.

Ok so I help train these dogs here in Texas. They are trained to sit or follow the scent of explosives, and to ignore everything else (food, other pet scents, people talking, etc.) Sometimes dogs will be dogs and they get a little goofy, but it's up to the handler to discern what's curious sniffing and what's a serious change in behavior.
