What was your friend pulled over for?
Why was a canine unit called?

I would say that if a trained drug sniffing dog alerted to your friends car's interior, that 'probable cause' might be the justification for a more thorough search inside.

I doubt that a police canine officer would just randomly pull someone over, have his dog search their car for no reason and then secretly have the dog react to nothing. What would be the point?
