This Nose For Hire
Parents Who suspect their teenager is dabbling in drugs now have an alternative to snooping through drawers and closets looking for a hidden stash of dope. They can hire a drug-sniffing dog to do it for them.
Hiring a drug-sniffing dog is a sign of desperate parenting, said Helen Jones, a spokeswoman for The Association of Parent Support Groups in Ontario. “In the long term it does nothing for the parent/child relationship and that’s really the only thing we have going for us,” she said.
