Dogs have an incredible sense of smell, capable of picking up the tiniest traces of illicit wildlife products in shipping containers, airports, and in the field. As part of our work developing new technologies and approaches to fighting illegal wildlife trade, we’re working with WWF and authorities in India, Kenya, and beyond to harness the incredible potential of wildlife sniffer dogs.

Army Dog Center Thatta, Badin, Karachi Firstly, three male and female dogs from German shepherd (Saray), German black (Kuzhi) and Labrador (Marco) breeds had been intensively trained throughout the classical conditioning method for 7 weeks. They were introduced to human specimens obtained from the throat and pharyngeal secretions of participants who were already reported positive or negative for SARS-COV-2 infection be RT-PCR. Each dog underwent the conditioning process for almost 1000 times. In the meantime another similar condition process was conducted on clothes and masks of COVID-19 patient using another three male and female dogs from Labrador (Lexi), Border gypsy (Sami), and Golden retriever (Zhico) breeds. In verification test for the first three dogs, 80 pharyngeal secretion samples consisting of 26 positive and 54 negative samples from different medical centers who underwent RT-PCR test were in a single-blind method. In the second verification test for the other three dogs, masks and clothes of 50 RT-PCR positive and 70 RT-PCR negative cases from different medical center were used.

The police often use dogs trained to find drugs in public places, including tube stations and festivals, in order to identify someone who is in possession of drugs. However, the dogs are not 100 per cent reliable. They may signal that someone is carrying drugs when they are not, or they might fail to identify someone who does have drugs on them.

The UK does not have any laws or regulations on the police use of sniffer dogs. There is only guidance on their use, which says that people cannot be forced to walk past the dogs, and that the dogs must walk through a crowd and then indicate people. However, every day across the country people are funnelled past sniffer dogs as they come off escalators at rail stations in clear breach of the guidance because it cannot be enforced.

Following the publication of our Phase 1 results we worked hard to achieve the relevant data to validate dogs’ impact in this model, but the successful vaccination program rolled out in the UK meant that focus changed from prevention of infection from transmission to prevention of severe illness through vaccination. This greatly reduced the number of LFT and PCR tests being taken by the public and all government guidelines and provision for testing stopped.

To improve dog’s lives through nosework. By applying our knowledge as dog trainers and scent instructors, we have developed a program that will enable owners to give their dogs positive scent experiences, not only teaching them to work and play with scent, but using scent to rectify problems in pet dogs when it comes to behaviour.
Data regarding the dogs’ response and the main characteristics of all the samples utilised during both the test and retest phases are reported as supplementary material (Supplementary Table 1). Volunteers had a median age of 51 years old (18–95 years, minimum–maximum), 63% were females and 77% had received anti-COVID-19 vaccination.
The combined sensitivity and specificity for all three dogs during the test phase was Se = 93% (95% CI = 84–103%) and Sp = 99% (95% CI = 97–101%). The combined sensitivity and specificity for all three dogs during the retest phase was Se = 83% (95% CI = 69–97%) and Sp = 97% (95% CI = 94–99%). Overall and individual Se and Sp are reported in Table 1. Based on the present prevalence of COVID-19 (17%), both the positive and negative predictive values were identical to Se and Sp, thus they will not be reported here for each individual dog. PPVs and NPVs were calculated according to this study prevalence (17%) and two hypothetical, opposite-strength prevalence (high and low) and are reported in Table 2.
