The US Supreme Court ruled that when a dog alerts during a drug sniff, the government does not have to demonstrate dog’s performance in the field to support the police officer’s finding of probable cause to conduct the search. Florida Supreme Court wanted data showing the dogs “hits and misses” in the field in addition to dog training and certifications and officer training and certifications. The US Supreme Court essentially lowered the standard and is satisfied with the dog’s training and certifications.
