      Just posted my reply to it, reposting here:

      Posted this a few years back but it’s worth posting again.
      We had a dog handler from the 911 search talk to us. She said that they learned from the Oklahoma City bombing that the fogs, trained to locate survivors/bodies, had never worked a large and devastated site as the Murrah building. The smell of death and decay was all over the site and the dogs could smell it but the destruction was so complete that they couldn’t find bodies.
      A ways into the search some the dogs started to act ‘off’ and didn’t seem as anxious or interested in working anymore, they were feeling ‘down’. One of the searchers figured that the dogs were depressed, they were trained to find people, they could smell people but couldn’t actually lay nose on anyone. One of the dog handlers figured a workaround – back at the areas they were staying in they’d have a worker lie down under some blankets, one of the dogs would be put into a search mode and sniff around until the worker was found. Turned out it worked, the down dogs finally got some play, ‘found’ someone and attitudes picked up. Last I heard the technique was still being used at the WTC. Dogs know.
