Police Dogs and Mushrooms
    #3229960 - 10/07/04 07:49 PM (19 years, 6 months ago)

Hello. I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this particular question in, but here goes. Does anyone know if police dogs are trained to sniff out magic mushrooms?

Hmm...I think some police dogs might be able to. Check this out:
There are three levels to be completed before they become Police Service Dogs:

Level One - bush tracking, open field searching, drugs or explosives (the dogs either search for drugs or explosives but not both as it confuses their noses). "Ryker" is a drug dog, he can search for heroin, cocaine, mushrooms, marihuana and crystal meth. Aggression is also taught to aid in criminal apprehension.

hmm... better safe than sorry. i've never heard of that but it might be true and you're better off not bringing any drugs where cops have dogs anyway. they can fake a hit without difficulty. there have been threads on this in the security and safety forum. the search engine can help you find k-9 info in that forum.

I'm not sure about all drug dogs, but I used to be friends with our local k-9 cop and his dog could not smell mushrooms despite his claims to the contrary. We tested the dog and it failed miserably.

Dried, powdered mushrooms..  maybe.
The problem is mushrooms smell like mushrooms.  Pot's distinctive, so's heroin and coke, but mushrooms?
Besides that, there's MANY MANY types of psychadelic mushrooms.. each smelling a bit different.  Not all even contain psilocybin -- a. muscaria for instance. 

I dunno.  I'd say no.  It's not like they're a pure substance or a plant with a distinctive easily-identifiable odor..  but I may be wrong :wink:  can't say I try to spend any time around drug dogs.

Every smell is pretty distinctive to a dog, it can pick out smels
we can not. If it can tell the difference between two male human scents, it can be trained to pick out specific mushroom speices too.

Most are not trained too, but they "can" be trained to find Psilocybe scents I'm sure.
