This article begins by attempting to understand sniff search jurisprudence through the earliest Supreme Court precedent and the application of those cases by the various circuits. Then after a brief discussion of the Caballes case itself it attempts to discern the various arguments made by the parties in the suit, scholars, and practitioners, examining each for its relative merit. Finally, the article attempts to predict what impact Caballes will have on both the use of canines in law enforcement and other technologies that serve similar purposes.
