Can dogs sniff out seeds?

In my younger days I tried ordering seeds from some random place on the net, and sadly had them confiscated. In the pleasant letter that received instead of my seeds, it claimed that they were detected by a k-9. I just recently tried ordering some seeds again. This time, instead of going with the first site I found, I’m trying drchronic after the praise that I’ve seen for them here. I just wanted to know if dogs really can detect cannabis seeds? As a difference between the two sites though, the first place I don’t even think repacked the seeds. Is it possible the dog just smelt pack they were in?

you have to imagine that the people who package the seeds are working around pot all day. the entire package comes from a place filled with potent weed. if i was a dog i would know.

It was probably just a form letter, I would think the seeds has some smell from any oils but with them being packaged and in a ziplock little baggie I would doubt it. They were found from unstealthy shipping, You should be ok with the good Dr.

I know this is old but I have to say something. My local post office gets random visits by the local K-9 Unit. They use the dog to check random packages and if the dog hits on a package they come to your house with a U.S. Postal Investigator and tell you to either let them open the package in front of you or they will get a warrant. They did it to me and I didnt even have anything in it. It was a package I was sending to a client that buys tropical trees from me and the dog was able to smell pot on the package just from having the packing materials near a little smoke! The worst part is they kept the package for 2 weeks before they even came and both my clents trees were dead and there was nothing I could do about it! Sure I could have tried to sue but it wouldnt get anywhere. The trees I raise and sell are worth a lot of money too. If a dog can smell bud on a package from just having it in the same vicinity as herb you can bet your bottom dollar a K-9 officer can smell seeds. The only way I know of fooling a dog is by sealing very well in multiple sealed plastics and in the outside layer line it with exotic hot pepper juice. Im not talking jalapeno’s or habanero’s either. Im saying Carolina Reapers, or Trinidad Moruga Scorpions! I raise both. Hottest peppers in the world. Ghost Chili’s havent been the hottest pepper since 2012.

Dogs Sniff Scent of Drugs on Teens

Parents turn to dogs for discreet way to detect their kids’ drug use.

Oct. 22, 2008 — — Ali is a highly trained German shepherd that spent eight years on narcotics patrol with the New Jersey police force, hunting down drug smugglers at airports and drug dealers on inner-city streets. Post-retirement, he’s working in the private sector, sniffing teenagers’ bedrooms.

Ali and his handler are now working for a new company in New Jersey called Sniff Dogs.

The company, which also conducts business in Ohio, rents drug-sniffing canines to parents for $200 an hour. It was started this year by Debra Stone, who says her five trained dogs can detect heroin, cocaine, crystal meth and ecstasy.

The dogs’ noses are so sensitive that they can smell a marijuana seed from up to 15 feet away and marijuana residue on clothing from drugs smoked two nights before.

One of the selling points of this service? Avoiding the kind of confrontation that comes with a drug test.

Watch “World News With Charles Gibson” tonight at 6:30 ET for the full report.

Pat Winterstein of Washington, N.J., was curious about the unusual specialty and turned to the dogs to search her teenagers’ bedrooms.

“Most kids will deny it and then where do you turn?” said Winterstein, who has three children, the youngest of whom is 14. “Not knowing is worrisome. It’s nice to know you can have something you can turn to.”

The dogs did not find any drugs this time, but Winterstein says she’ll keep doing the tests periodically, if necessary, to ensure that her children stay free of drugs.

Though critics say this approach runs the risk of breaking down the trust between parents and children, Winterstein says it offers her solace.

“As a parent you worry,” she said. “My kids are great. I trust my kids, but you only can trust them so far.”

Drug-sniffing dogs aren’t the only measures parents are using to keep tabs on their children. There are now Global Positioning System devices that can be sewn into children’s clothing to monitor how fast they’re driving, and software that allows a parent to read text messages.

But some psychologists say these surveillance techniques can backfire.

“There are major repercussions for this type of intervention,” said Dr. Neil Bernstein, a Washington, D.C.-based clinical psychologist and author of the book “How to Keep Your Teen Out of Trouble.”

“When parents do this it erodes trust and goodwill.”

Drug Dogs May Spot Warning Signs

Melinda Bennington of Chatham, N.J., wishes that she had dogs to help her see the warnings signs before it was too late. Her son Tom died of a heroin overdose two years ago.

“Had I known that in eighth grade he had actually already started snorting heroin, I probably would have done some things differently,” she said in retrospect.

As parents, Bennington and Winterstein agree that checking up on children is not only a parent’s right, but a responsibility.

“They’re kids, young adults — they’re going to make [a] mistake,” Winterstein said. “And I just want them to know that I’m here for them and that I’m doing my job to love and protect them. This is my way of protecting them.”
