Waffle Iron I suppose if you could fly like Superman, that might throw the dog off

gsdsar No it's not true. Having a dog that works in disaster situations, I can verify it's not true. The number if lightbulbs we have worked over.... Not true.

huntergreen i have hears plenty o myths. have guys on the ship try many things to keep the drug dog from finding there stash. none were successful. i guess if you broke enough glass and the dog really cut up his paws, that would stop him.

NancyJ Oh I doubt it. I have heard people claim that if you walk in a big spiral you will mess up a tracking dog, walking through water, wearing a scent proof suit etc. None of those things work. Drug dogs train in stuff hidden in gas tanks and can smell through the gasoline (which does coat the sinuses).........

SARpup That is what I was thinking but they said a reliable TRAINER told them so I had to ask!

JustJim Um, I don't think so . . . . I've seen dogs track around/through broken fluorescent bulbs, and notice/investigate a broken streetlight bulb before returning to the track.

Broken lightbulbs

Someone told me the other day that to get a tracking dog off your trail you can break a light bulb and leave it on the trail and when the dog smells it his nose will be messed up and unable to track you anymore.
I have never heard of this before, anyone know if this is true?
