Contention 1: Surveillance Measures Drug Dogs Fail Probable cause requires drug dogs "When Can Police Use Drug Dogs? | Flex Your Rights ." Flex Your Rights. N.p., n.d. Web. 28 June 2016. <;. The Caballes ruling authorizes police to walk a drug dog around the vehicle during any legitimate traffic stop .
