What are the benefits to using sniffer dogs to detect explosives or drugs?

There are many benefits to using sniffer dogs, not only are they specifically trained to detect explosives but they are extremely versatile, efficient and effective at what they do.

One notable quality of detection sniffer dogs is that they are able to discern individual scents even when there are dozens of other scents around. Specific species of Canines can contain over three hundred million receptors in their noses compared to about thirty million for humans.

Dogs smell using the same reflexes as humans but are better than us at detecting odours. Their noses are larger than ours so they can inhale more air per sniff. They also have more odour receptors than us and their noses are more sensitive.
