Sniffing, or reacting to handler cues?

Chicago Tribune Analysis: Tribune analysis: Drug-sniffing dogs in traffic stops often wrong:

But a Tribune analysis of three years of data for suburban departments found that only 44 percent of those alerts by the dogs led to the discovery of drugs or paraphernalia. For Hispanic drivers, the success rate was just 27 percent.

You should not be a cop.

What the dog really knows is how nervous/tense his handler is.. which might be a big factor.
