The law of service dogs can generally be categorized as an aspect of disability rights. The law of police dogs is most often part of criminal law, with important Fourth Amendment issues having been raised as to canine-produced evidence in prosecutions. This talk will focus on how scientific research on scent detection capabilities of dogs has been taken into account, or ignored, by judges, legislators and regulators, frequently to the surprise if not dismay of scientists who produced or testified concerning the research. Issues that have arisen concerning medical alert, narcotics detection, human remains detection and other specialized dogs will be discussed.
